What makes entrepreneurs entrepreneurial?
< http://depts.washington.edu/bapub/research/saras.html >
"Entrepreneurs are entrepreneurial, as differentiated from managerial or
strategic, because they think effectually; they believe in a
yet-to-be-made future that can substantially be shaped by human action;
and they realize that to the extent that this human action can control
the future, they need not expend energies trying to predict it. In fact,
to the extent that the future is shaped by human action, it is not much
use trying to predict it – it is much more useful to understand and work
with the people who are engaged in the decisions and actions that bring
it into existence."
