Over time, entrepreneurship research has examined a range of questions ranging from individuals’ decisions to cultivate entrepreneurial enterprises, to opportunity identification, to the impact of the regional environment on the incidence of starting new ventures and new venture survival. More recently, research on entrepreneurial ecosystems has begun to connect these two lines of research to consider the interaction between individuals and their environments via the concept of entrepreneurial ecosystems. Despite this research progress, several gaps in our knowledge base about entrepreneurs and their environments remain. To begin to fill these gaps, this session is dedicated to highlighting research on unexplored or under-explored research on entrepreneurship. Research that explores these issues from either a conceptual, qualitative, and/or quantitative framework are welcome.
