Abstract :
[en] In this presentation we consider the implications of conceptualizing entrepreneurial as the practice of artifactual design. The concept of design draws attention to the interdependence of agency and material artifacts in the entrepreneur's ability to overcome (or not) the constraints of embodied practice and the contingent environment. We develop a conceptual understanding of how the entrepreneur extends the spatio temporal reach of entrepreneurial agency by embedding entrepreneurial purpose in various artifactual forms - forms which then contextualist subsequent activity. In this process also, the future is created as multiple actors create, enact, test, modify, transform and implement these artifactual forms through embodied practice.
