One of the major problems still faced by entrepreneurship scholars in their field is the difficulty of creating a conceptual framework, integrating entrepreneurship theory-development into a coherent scheme. The discussion of what entrepreneurship research is about has been conducted by numerous authors (e.g. Busenitz et al., 2003; Bygrave and Hofer, 1991; Davidsson and Wiklund, 2001; Gartner, 2001; Low and MacMillan, 1988; Shane and Venkataraman, 2000). There is consensus that entrepreneurship research can include the creation and development of new organizations. However, this is not sufficient, because entrepreneurship can also happen within existing organizations or, furthermore, opportunities can be sold to other individuals or to existing organizations (Shane and Venkataraman, 2000, 219).
