Abstract

Entrepreneurship as a field of research has grown significantly since the publication of Lumpkin and Dess (1996), an article that addressed what it means to be entrepreneurial. The field has gained legitimacy in part through research that asks how phenomena such as market conditions, institutional environments, and strategic behaviors inform the entrepreneurship domain. New progress can be made by asking how phenomena unique to the domain of entrepreneurship help researchers understand decisions, actions, and environments outside of the domain. Ideas for using entrepreneurial knowledge to explain more general phenomena are presented.
