Entrepreneurial marketing: a new approach for challenging times
AbstractEntrepreneurial Marketing (EM) is a theoretical construct at the nexus between marketing and entrepreneurship, with a relatively long existence – over thirty years - but insufficiently developed. Entrepreneurial thinking, which is nonlinear, creative and avoids predictions, contradicts the traditional marketing model. Thus a “divorce” appears between marketing theory - which emphasizes managerial marketing behavior- and marketing practice in entrepreneurial firms. The purpose of this paper is to conceptually define EM through integration of different perspectives of marketing, management and entrepreneurship. This conceptual paper used a critical review of the most representative articles from international marketing and entrepreneurship journals. This paper presents a brief history of EM evolution and an analysis of the most common definitions. It clarifies the differences between EM and small business marketing, based on the differences between entrepreneurs and small business owners.
