Abstrakti

There is an increasing amount of practice-based entrepreneurship studies that advance the emerging field of entrepreneurship-as-practice (EAP). In this paper, we examine the practices of doing practice-based entrepreneurship studies by drawing from our own fieldwork experiences based on a framework developed for this study. Based on this, we make three suggestions for developing EAP: 1) the need to account for the interconnectedness of practices, 3) the need to develop ethnographic studies and 3) the need to change the methodological vocabulary. If in EAP studies it is considered that practices are interconnected and value is given to ethnographic fieldwork, these should be reflected in the way we document entrepreneurship-as-practice research. We argue that EAP research benefits from staying open to advancements in practice-based studies in other disciplines, especially in the field of organisation and management studies. We conclude by an invitation to consider the practices of doing EAP research.
