Abstract: Innovation, entrepreneurship and knowledge have been acknowledged as the basis of economic competiveness and growth, with recent research pointing out the powerful impact of their joint consideration. Specific literature has emerged in the last years suggesting that the three concepts constitute a promising new scholarly discipline. Nevertheless, previous bibliometric studies have highlighted that these three research fields are still mainly developing in a separate manner. The aim of this study is to analyze the current research front at the intersection of the three concepts in business research, through a bibliometric study based on performance metrics, bibliographic coupling and word co-occurrence analysis. This study aims to provide researchers, firms, and policy-makers with a valuable source of knowledge that allows them to define research lines, business strategies and policy measures. Innovation, entrepreneurship and knowledge studies in the business area configure a promising research field at an early stage of development.
