The Emerging Strategic Entrepreneurship Field

I recently attended an excellent conference at the Copenhagen Business School on “Microfoundations of Strategic Entrepreneurship.” Strategic entrepreneurship is a new research field seeking to combine insights from entrepreneurship studies with the literature on firm strategy. Entrepreneurial activity typically takes place within firms, and firms are created and sustained by entrepreneurs, so one might expect that these fields have always been closely connected, but the research literatures in entrepreneurship and in firm strategy actually developed independently. See Nicolai Foss’s remarks on the field here, and my own impressions of the conference here. Here’s a paper that builds on the idea of entrepreneurship as a latent construct.
