Various perspectives on entrepreneurship are discussed and scope of what comprises entrepreneurship is drawn out. The objective of the note is to underscore the importance of theory driven practice and action in the face of uncertainty. Even though entrepreneurial actions and practices sometimes appear strange in the eyes of the untrained, it is important to recognize that entrepreneurs have their own ways of ensuring business results.
