Abstract

Despite the increasing relevance of digital technologies for entrepreneurial processes and outcomes, research on the impact of digitalization on individual-level entrepreneurship variables is still scarce. Specifically, we identify the need to further examine the construct of the entrepreneurial mindset in the digital context. In examining the literature, we conclude that although the basic tenets of entrepreneurial thinking and acting still apply in the digital world, several distinct aspects of digitalization such as digital literacy, abductive thinking, and technostress influence the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional aspects of the entrepreneurial mindset. Using those as a basis for our work, we provide a theoretical foundation for prospective studies and insights for entrepreneurship practice.
