This study investigates the entrepreneurial learning (EL) process by focusing on the recognition of events in entrepreneurs’ everyday life as a critical phase for learning. Current studies suggest that existing EL frameworks are nebulous in representing how entrepreneurs recognize an everyday event as an experience that might stimulate learning (Lindh and Thorgren, 2016). Our work addresses this gap and explores the experiences of 38 entrepreneurs through in-depth interviews. The aim is to extend current EL frameworks about the nexus experience-recognition and learning.

Abstract

This study investigates the entrepreneurial learning (EL) process by focusing on the recognition of events in entrepreneurs’ everyday life as a critical phase for learning. Current studies suggest that existing EL frameworks are nebulous in representing how entrepreneurs recognize an everyday event as an experience that might stimulate learning (Lindh and Thorgren, 2016). Our work addresses this gap and explores the experiences of 38 entrepreneurs through in-depth interviews. The aim is to extend current EL frameworks about the nexus experience-recognition and learning.
