DARE seminar: Types and Roles of Entrepreneurship

The fifth DARE seminar was organized in Rotterdam and presented two comprehensive overview studies of entrepreneurship research in the Netherlands. One study focused on the different types of entrepreneurship and what role these types play in our economy and society. A second study explained the contribution of SMEs to the economy. This DARE event was organized in cooperation with the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE) at the ECE Campus, Rotterdam Science Tower.

Different types of entrepreneurship can be distinguished, each playing a particular roleAndre-Stel-300x170
Within the research framework on SMEs and Entrepreneurship, Panteia carried out an overview study that presents state of the art research findings on types of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is a heterogeneous phenomenon that can have different manifestations in our economy, varying from solo self-employed to employer firms and from women entrepreneurship to green entrepreneurship. Furthermore within these different types of entrepreneurship, various roles can be observed that each contribute to the economy or society in a different way. For example, entrepreneurs can be experimentators or imitators, they can be initators or enablers, each with different final effects for economic growth or societal value. Building on the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem (Stam, 2014) the presented study introduces a framework that explains how these different types of entrepreneurship play a contributing role to economy and society.

Some entrepreneurial types were discussed in more detail. For instance, it was argued that solo self-employed play a crucial role in enabling better and more efficient entrepreneurship in larger companies by lowering risks and offering specialized skills and knowledge. Also, green entrepreneurs are different from more “regular” entrepreneurs because they recognize opportunies that are both profitable and sustainable. However they are often more affected by policy implications.
