Entrepreneurial behaviour is central to understanding how entrepreneurs create, develop, maintain and grow new organisations. Despite the importance of entrepreneurial behaviour as a theoretical construct to understand the process of entrepreneurship, extant research is fragmented and lacks a coherent framework as to how entrepreneurial behaviour is enacted in different contexts. In order to address this, this chapter first defines what is traditionally associated with the term. Building on a conceptualisation of entrepreneurial behaviour as action-oriented and observable, a rationale is then provided as to why an individual, contextual and micro-foundational approach is both timely and pertinent. The chapter concludes with a suggested future research agenda including illustrative research questions in order to advance theoretical development with the entrepreneurial behavioural domain.
