Abstract [en]

While the development of mainstream entrepreneurship research has been quite successful in academic terms, the field has adopted some taken-for-granted assumptions and views hampering its further development, e.g. the polarisation between individual voluntarism and institutional determinism, the focus on single individuals, the focus on enterprise start-ups etc. Contrary to that, we propose a social constructionist epistemology in entrepreneurship research, according to which entrepreneurship is collectively organised by individuals in interaction, i.e. as projects. In this paper, two issues connected to the notion of ‘interactive entrepreneurship’ are discussed; the meaning of innovative social processes and the empirical inquiry on innovative projects. It is concluded by a discussion on how recent developments in project management can be beneficial to entrepreneurship research.
