  • A recent survey by Millennial Branding and oDesk reveals the prevalence of freelancers among the Millennial workforce. The survey, which polled independent professionals between the ages of 19 and 30, found that 72% of freelancers want to quit their regular jobs, and 61% intend to do so in the next two years. The survey also gives shape to a new definition of entrepreneurship: 90% of the professionals surveyed indicate that entrepreneurship is a mindset rather than a title for someone who owns a business. Freelancing is especially appealing to Millennials, who are known for wanting freedom and flexibility in their careers, as well as the ability to rapidly achieve career success. .

  • Entrepreneurship researchers use various types of screening criteria to select samples for study.

  • Although people generally agree on a broad definition of social entrepreneurship, confusion reigns over the specifics.

  • This paper reviewed the field of entrepreneurship and proposed four criteria for classifying entrepreneurship sub-fields; the classification criteria include the entrepreneur's work environs wherein the entrepreneur is embedded, the motivation behind the venture, the nature of the opportunity being exploited, and the location of the opportunity.

  • Would-be entrepreneurs tend to make certain common mistakes when starting a new enterprise. Chief among these mistakes is the failure to properly plan finances, especially cash flow. Such a failure is the epitome of the statement, "Failure to plan is a plan to fail." It has been said that in entrepreneurship the definition of happiness is "positive cash flow." Companies die for one reason -- they run out of cash.

  • What is a "small business" in the eyes of the law? There is not one standard definition. Current legal definitions of a firm’s size are inconsistent and overinclusive. They vary from one area of the law to another and within various sections of the same law. They create a skewed picture and result in data distortion that reinforces favoritism toward small entities, as studies on the contribution of small businesses to the economy are greatly dependent on these studies’ delineation of the term "small". In this time of huge deficits and rise in economic inequality, a lot of money is being spent based on the entrenched belief that small firms are the essence of our economy, which is not necessarily true.

  • The entrepreneurship literature has grown to include a host of sub-domain concepts such as "corporate entrepreneurship," "social entrepreneurship," and "opportunity entrepreneurship." This article applies a framework of theoretical lenses to historical definitions of entrepreneurship to explore the range of potential sub-domain terms. A taxonomy is applied to these terms to create a lexicon as well as new combinations of sub-domain terms such as nascent, opportunity, immigrant, and social entrepreneurship. The lexicon and the boundaries between sub-domain terms are used to generate new research questions, testable propositions, and new insights in the field of entrepreneurship.
