Entrepreneurial Identity and Role Expectations in Nascent Entrepreneurship
Journal article, 2015

Entrepreneurship has been defined as an individual ↔ new value creation dialogic. To study how entrepreneurial identity evolves, this article, drawing from entrepreneurial learning theory, adds an entrepreneurial role expectations dialogic. Longitudinal evidence from nascent entrepreneurs working in venture teams around invention disclosures offers illustration of dialogics, including how they evolve over time to build entrepreneurial identity. In contrast to the theory of planned behavior, the findings suggest that becoming entrepreneurial does not primarily stem from intention but rather from interacting with new value creation and role expectations in an immediate team environment.
