Abstract

Examining the compilation of chapters in this companion leads to a sweeping conclusion that we believe entrepreneurship scholars should celebrate: the good news is that entrepreneurship research does not have a distinctive domain. We mean this both theoretically and descriptively. Not only do the contributors represent the juxtaposition of an extraordinary array of perspectives and compelling theoretical questions, their work privileges an equally extraordinary array of empirical settings. Entrepreneurship itself in all of its messy (Gartner 2004), contradictory fecundity has begotten a field of research that still clamours to reflect it adequately.
