Abstract

Entrepreneurship scholars have traditionally confined their research to the economic realm, but are increasingly interested in other outcomes, including how entrepreneurship contributes to well-being of themselves and the stakeholders of their businesses. In this chapter, we take a holistic view of the entrepreneurial process, exploring the ways in which entrepreneurship can impede or enhance well-being. This includes a review of the growing literature explicitly concerned with the well-being of entrepreneurs as well as other literatures relevant to the wellbeing of other stakeholders. The paper also includes considerations for future research opportunities including a reflection whether well-being should be considered an alternative metric for entrepreneurial success.
