Vliamos, Spyros (2016-08)


The development of entrepreneurial mindset is a challenge and a goal which requires an in-depth investigation of the learning processes in meta–level, because the key factors are related to meta-cognitive processes and procedures on motivation and behavior. The purpose of this paper is towards understanding the knowledge – opportunities – entrepreneurship mechanism and therefore the role of opportunities in the entrepreneurial process. This paper aims to consider that the concepts developed in this literature can be treated equally well both as topics on entrepreneurial behavior and as a mental exercise in the cognitive science, pedagogy and philosophy of brain. The author accepts that cognitive mechanisms reinforce individual’s existing knowledge base and makes it one of the most important elements contributing to the opportunity identification. So, through a process of logical inference addresses some questions related to the opportunity – entrepreneurship action relationship.
