The quest to understand the entrepreneur: Inaugural lecture with Prof Francisco Linan
What makes an entrepreneur? Although they are becoming economic and social "heroes" as innovators and job creators, we still lack considerable knowledge about this figure. Throughout the years, the academic approaches to identify and understand the entrepreneur have been evolving. Overall, we have now an interesting and enlightening (albeit partial) picture of what entrepreneurship is. The lecture will review the different contributions and will point out some of the more promising present lines of research.
