Chapter Chapter 14 in Understanding the Entrepreneurial Mind, 2009, pp 305-325 from Springer

Abstract: Since its inception, entrepreneurship has struggled with the academic version of a new venture’s liability of newness; the field was considered pre-paradigmatic (Ireland et al., 2005b), bereft of theory or conceptual frameworks (Phan, 2004; Zahra and Dess, 2001) and so lacking in understanding that investigators could not agree on what constituted the phenomenon of interest: any kind of self-employment? New venture creation? Corporate venturing? Something else? All of the above (Gartner, 1990; Ireland et al., 2005a; Low, 2001, Vesper, 1982)?
