Toward a Theory of Entrepreneurial Behavior

Abstract

The chapter reviews several of the most prominent entrepreneurship frameworks to demonstrate that the entrepreneurship field lacks a theory of entrepreneurial behavior. However, each of these existing frameworks would benefit from, and be complemented by, an entrepreneurial behavioral theory. Drawing from multiple streams of research, the chapter offers a preliminary theory of entrepreneurial behavior. Several propositions are offered and new research opportunities are identified.
