The socially-dynamic entrepreneurial process: an anthropological approach
by Toke Bjerregaard; Jakob Lauring
International Journal of Entrepreneurial Venturing (IJEV), Vol. 4, No. 2, 2012


Abstract: Large shares of the entrepreneurship research are informed by two central lines of thought. One focuses on the role of formal and informal social networks for mobilising resources and obtaining information about new markets and opportunities. The other conceives of individual personality traits or cognitive schemes as the independent variable behind entrepreneurial activity. Elaborating on the socially-dynamic perspectives of anthropological theories, this article presents a coherent theoretical framework for entrepreneurship research embracing the social dimensions as well as individual factors. The article thus proposes an approach integrating the social and subjective levels of analysis as part of the same socially-dynamic entrepreneurial process.
