Abstract

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.
