Abstract

Entrepreneurial learning has emerged as a promising area of research at the interface between learning and the entrepreneurial context (Harrison & Leitch, 2005). Central to entrepreneurial learning research are issues pertinent to not only what entrepreneurs should, or do learn during the creation and management of entrepreneurial ventures, but more importantly, the specific processes of learning that occur in this context (Cope, 2005). The literature is incongruous on many aspects of entrepreneurial learning and the role of learning in the entrepreneurial process has not been well understood (Deakins, 1996; Minniti & Bygrave, 2001; Cope, 2005; Harrison & Leitch, 2005). In this study, we aim to synthesize existing research in this area, define and articulate what entrepreneurial learning is in the organizational context, and accordingly direct future research efforts to build our understanding in this area.
