He put forward a term to describe the character of entrepreneurs’ psychological cognition, which is “Alertness”. He defined it as the ability to notice but without search the opportunities that are neglected previously, even are neglected by themselves. But in Kirzner later theory, he added that opportunities could not be find only accidental, but also be find through alertly search within a given period. Those opportunities exist may because the cognitive bias or mistakes of the earlier enters, and the later entered entrepreneur alertly notice those opportunities, through opening a new enterprise, expanding the productions, or engaging in arbitrage to develop the market, and gain profit through reallocating the resources. As those entrepreneurial opportunities are found within the disequilibrium market, the alert entrepreneurs’ activities would push this market towards equilibrium.
Entrepreneurs are taking risk through decision making. Barkam, (1989); Henry, (2003) they also agreed views of Drucker and Schultz of behavioral approach. Gartner (1989) also criticized the traits approach to entrepreneurship and claimed that entrepreneurs creates an organization where as non-entrepreneur does not. He vies personality traits of traits as ancillary to his /her behavior. Entrepreneurship is still all about the creation of an organization, they performing series of actions which ultimately result in the set up a new venture.
Pursue Opportunities The way, the time and the pattern of revelation of the existence of entrepreneurial opportunities are the starting point for understanding entrepreneurship. The second stage of the understanding procedure is to clarify why, when and how entrepreneurial agents discover and evaluate opportunities. The final stage is when and how different models of their exploitation are employed. Opportunities rise in the uncertain environment. Living in an uncertain environment means taking a position against risk.
The main concern in the article was about the relationship between strategic management and entrepreneurship. Researchers have been inconsistent in their definitions of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is defined as self-employment of any sort. Entrepreneurs buy at certain prices in the present and sell at uncertain prices in the future. The entrepreneur is a bearer of uncertainty (Richard Cantillon (circa 1730).

Introduction This paper will examine whether repeat entrepreneurs search for opportunities differently than entrepreneurs who found only one company. Before examining the case for or against this theory, a brief discussion what makes up an entrepreneur opens this paper. From there it moves into a brief discussion of Howard Stevenson and his importance within the field of study of entrepreneurism. Then the focus turns to a case for or against whether repeat entrepreneurs search for opportunities differently than entrepreneurs who found only one company. To emphasize the findings discussed, a brief case study of a successful entrepreneur hopes to reinforce the concepts discussed.
Abstract Entrepreneurial alertness plays a significant role in pursuit of new opportunities (Kirzner, 1999). Building on the arguments on alertness presented by Tang and his colleagues in 2012 as well as Sarasvathy’s work on opportunity identification (2003) and stage theory, this research studies how alert connection — one dimension of entrepreneurial alertness promotes opportunity identification throughout development stages in both mature and immature markets. By studying the examples of successful entrepreneurs, I further explore the alert connection in the market characterized by unmet needs and the differences in the opportunity identification process in var-ious business fields. I then conduct interview with representatives from
Schmitz provides similar notion of opportunity-based entrepreneurship when he notes that entrepreneurship promotes social-economic transformation because of “imitative activities of entrepreneurs” (Schmitz, 1989, p. 721). Schmitz’s model argues that it is the imitating entrepreneur, rather than the innovative entrepreneur who promotes growth in the economy (Schmitz, 1989). Imitating entrepreneurs are those who emulate or duplicate existing innovative ideas of original entrepreneurs and puts them into use. This idea
The entrepreneur uses this knowledge in reallocating resources, where it is argued that the qualities of shrewdness and deviousness enter, to his own advantaged. The very nature of entrepreneurship, that is doing something new and remote making it unpredictable, makes it impossible to give a precise and universally acceptable characterisation of it. Consequently there is a diversity of opinion regarding its function and definition. The neo classical theory of the firm, entrepreneurial activity is analogous to a fixed factor endowment because it sets a limit to the efficient size of the firm. The static and passive role of the entrepreneur in the neo-classical theory reflects the theory's emphasis on perfect information, which trivializes management and decisions making, and on perfect markets, which do all the coordination that is necessary and leave nothing for the entrepreneur.
The Journey Thus Far and What Lies Ahead What art we to speaketh of? This essay aims to examine the academic literature on entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship. It will then proceed to articulate any associations or inconsistencies between the definitions established from literature and the real world examples of entrepreneurs which will encompass individuals running small businesses in counties to founders that are now in-charge of multi-million/billion dollar operations. Subsequently, by employing reflective thinking, this essay will recollect and review the teachings of this course thus far. The takeaways from the teachings will then be applied to the real world practice of entrepreneurship and the quantitative and or qualitative impacts of the lessons learned will be observed.
