This article presents a response to the commentary "Entrepreneurship and Contextual Definitions of Mental Disorders: Why Psychiatry Abandoned the Latter and Entrepreneurship Scholars May Want to Follow Suit"by Agafonow and Perez (2020), who commented on the AMP Entrepreneurship and Mental Health symposium. We discuss and largely challenge the commentary's criticism against the backdrop of the emerging research relating clinical psychology and mental health disorders (especially ADHD) to entrepreneurship. The aim of this response is to help scholars more clearly understand the relevance and challenges of including a (sub)clinical perspective in the study of entrepreneurial decisions, processes, and outcomes.
