Why the word Entrepreneurship should be abandoned
In a challenging review in the latest issue of Small Enterprise Research (24.2), renowned entrepreneurship expert Simon Bridge contends that entrepreneurship is an invented concept and myth. Tracing the history of the phenomenon of entrepreneurship from its early 20th century origins to present day, Bridge posits that there is still no single widely accepted definition of the word entrepreneurship or accepted model of how entrepreneurship operates. Bridge argues that ‘entrepreneurship’ as currently conceived does not exist and the word should be abandoned. This provocative review confronts some of the fundamental premises of ‘entrepreneurship’ and offers thought-provoking insight to how the field might advance.Emma O'Brien
