Working Paper

This study provides a critical examination of how different theoretical perspectives present the concept of entrepreneurship and its relative issues evident in the creation and development of some theories, trends and strategies. As an entrepreneur is the most important factor either to the development of new ventures or to the majority of the theories of entrepreneurship, the present analysis highlights his/her roles and underlies the differences and similarities in various reviews and how he/she designated in the past and present days. Core issues related to entrepreneurship are also presented with the aim of developing insights that would advance the concept of entrepreneurship and accentuate types of entrepreneurship where different entrepreneurial skills, such as opportunity recognition and risk-taking, are apparent and help educators interested in the entrepreneurial education.
