This developmental paper from the Entrepreneurship track of BAM 2013 aims to contribute to the developing entrepreneurial learning literature, pioneered by Jason Cope.

The paper also adds a new perspective to various literature streams that have offered insights into work-place learning processes, which include, ‘reference groups’ ; ‘tacit knowledge’; ‘absorptive capacity’; ‘communities of practice’; ‘entrepreneurial alertness’ ; and ‘entrepreneurial social competences’.
