We define "entrepreneuring" as efforts to bring about new economic, social, institu tional, and cultural environments through the actions of an individual or group of individuals. Thus, we view entrepreneuring as an emancipatory process with broad change potential. This view foregrounds three aspects of entrepreneuring that merit closer attention in future research?seeking autonomy, authoring, and making dec larations. We highlight the novel directions for entrepreneurship research suggested by our emancipatory and relate perspective it to the special topic forum articles.
