In recent time corporate entrepreneurship has received valuable attention as an activity important for firms vitality (Dess et al., 2003). Nevertheless, the essence of corporate entrepreneurial activity has not been sufficiently clarified (Guth & Ginsberg, 1990; Kuratko et al., 2005; Stopford & Baden-Fuller, 1994). Stopford and Baden-Fuller (1994) call to pay attention to such questions as whether and how the attributes of behavior normally associated with individual entrepreneurs can infect the enterprise as a whole.

We engage in the discussion opened by these authors and address the question of how corporate entrepreneurs actually behave, hence contributing to a better understanding of the process of corporate entrepreneurship and its consequences for the firms where it takes place.
