We contribute...
Article
This paper aims to propose a new perspective on Necessity Entrepreneurship (NE). This phenomenon is indeed widely considered in the literature as having no or a negative impact on economic growth and is therefore mostly depreciated by scholars. We argue that NE allows to socially integrate deprived individuals and increase their psychological and h...
Article
Cognitive heuristics, biases, and overconfidence have been suggested as an explanation for entrepreneurial entry. Nevertheless, empirical research on the subject has produced mixed findings and has under-explored the cognitive mechanisms leading to overconfidence in entrepreneurial settings. In two within-subject experiments, we focus on three cogn...

We argue, in this article, that to develop knowledge in entrepreneurship we need to do research digging into four perspectives: redesigning entrepreneurship research, crossing the fields and the concepts, embedding knowledge in insightful concepts and domains, and exploring (new) or revisiting (old) research topics. These four perspectives come fro...
