Abstract

Purpose

Strategic entrepreneurship (SE) depicts the nexus of strategic management and entrepreneurship, suggesting that firms can create superior wealth when simultaneously pursuing advantage-seeking and opportunity-seeking behavior. As the rapid growth in SE research led to a multidisciplinary, scattered and fragmented literature landscape, the authors aim to structure this research field.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors employ a bibliographic coupling and literature review of the strategic entrepreneurship research field.

Findings

The authors identify and describe five major research streams with 15 sub-themes in recent SE research. Based on our findings, the authors propose an integrated research framework and research gaps for future research.

Originality/value

To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first review on SE based on a bibliographic coupling.
