Tim Hannigan, PhD

While entrepreneurship research has blossomed into a rich, multidisciplinary scholarly field, the teaching of entrepreneurship remains handcuffed to the legacy of overly-simplistic applied economic ideas—especially the valorization of heroic role of individuals and a focus on the development of abstract opportunities—that has imprinted current curricula. We propose reimagining entrepreneurial teaching by forging a transdisciplinary approach that stresses the embeddedness and situatedness of entrepreneurship. Non-economic research – especially from sociological and anthropological fields - can be emphasized in seeding such a reimagining. We seek to reimagine and reorient around three foundations: i) relationality as entrepreneurs navigate the early moments of markets, ii) focusing on necessity and stigma entrepreneurship, and iii) integrating research from the entrepreneurship-as-practice literature.
