Course description:

Background for DREAM

Entrepreneurship research is a relatively young discipline that has until recently been focused on the recognition and discovery of opportunities. As it grows up and engages in a more serious conversation with the history of ideas, an additional exciting agenda might consist in researching entrepreneurship not only as finding but also as ‘making’ new opportunities, firms, markets and institutions. Intellectual inspiration for this agenda comes from works such as Herbert Simon’s Sciences of the Artificial, Nelson Goodman’s Ways of Worldmaking, and James Buchanan and Victor Vanberg’s Market as a Creative Process.

To whom it is intended
