This chapter takes an entrepreneurship as practice (EAP) perspective to examine the entrepreneurial process conceiving entrepreneurial learning (EL) as a culturally and socially shaped achievement. We argue there is conceptual synergy between EAP and EL manifested in understanding entrepreneurs as active social actors, who develop an understanding of their surrounding environment and learn through social interactions. Anchoring EAP and EL in cognitive learning theory, we contribute to developing a nuanced and novel appreciation of the entrepreneurial process.
