Among entrepreneurship researchers, there has been growing attention to questions of ontology, epistemology, and axiology. Recently, Packard (2017) advocated an interpretivist approach to entrepreneurship. In this paper, we articulate a performative approach, which offers a far more distributed and emergent view of entrepreneurship as process. In addition to briefly introducing some of the intellectual traditions underlying a performative approach, we highlight important differences between interpretivism and performativity and summarize the implications of taking a performative approach to entrepreneurship.
