Abstract

This study introduces the Deleuzian concept of “encounter” to describe the moments of high intensity that direct, redirect, accelerate, decelerate, and, often, perturb entrepreneurial paths marked by entrepreneurial bricolage (Baker & Nelson, 2005). A conceptual framework is proposed to first define the Deleuzian encounter. The choice of signifiers referring to the encounter will then be studied in a corpus of entrepreneurial narratives to deepen the understanding of how entrepreneurs express and experience this concept.
