Entrepreneurial Identity and Role Expectations in Nascent Entrepreneurship
Lundqvist, Mats; Middleton, Karen Williams; Nowell, Pamela
Industry and Higher Education, v29 n5 p327-344 Oct 2015
Entrepreneurship has been defined as an individual?new value creation dialogic. To study how entrepreneurial identity evolves, this article, drawing on entrepreneurial learning theory, adds an entrepreneurial role expectations dialogic. Longitudinal evidence from nascent entrepreneurs working in venture teams on invention disclosures offers an illustration of dialogics, including how they evolve over time to build entrepreneurial identity. In contrast to the theory of planned behaviour, the findings suggest that becoming entrepreneurial does not stem primarily from intention but rather from interacting with new value creation and role expectations in an immediate team environment.
