The Social Constructionist View in Entrepreneurship Research: A Thematic-Content Analysis.
Entrepreneurship is considered as a social construct through a thematic content analysis of twenty-five (n=25) articles that were selected on the basis of ‘markers of qualitative goodness’. There are variations in the literature relating to the social constructionist view of entrepreneurship. The majority of the reviewed literature leading the selected articles were found lacking in terms of research rigor, sincerity and meaningful coherence. This paper therefore recommends the consideration of these elements in research studies and entrepreneurship education. The value of this study lies in its exploratory utility in guiding future research in the fields of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education.
