Abstract [sv]

Genom en holistisk syn, med utgångspunkt i vår uppfattning av entreprenörskap var från uppväxten gav vi oss ut på en så kallad Heffaklumpsjakt för att utveckla vår förförståelse för entreprenören. Via en kvadrohermeneutisk utgångspunkt och en abduktiv forskningsprocess tolkades tre livsberättelser med vad vi såg som riktiga entreprenörer. Utifrån livsberättelserna upptäckte vi egenskaper/beteenden som var viktiga för entreprenörernas framgång. De var oberoende, beslutsfattare, innovatörer, tävlare, människokännare och mentorer spelade roll för dem. Hur dessa egenskaper gav sig uttryck skilde sig hos de tre entreprenörerna. Vi insåg att det är orättvist att koppla egenskaperna till individer, egenskaperna är så pass breda och kan passa in på individer som inte direkt är entreprenörer. Däremot kan vi se att framkomna beteenden kan ge en god grund till entreprenörskap, men de är inte måsten hos en entreprenör.

Abstract [en]

Through a holistic outlook from out childhood and what we thought entrepreneurship was we tried to grasp the so called Heffalump. In that way we, were going to develop our preunderstanding about the entrepreneur. With a quadro-hermeneutics standpoint and an abductive research process three life stories were made with what we perceived as true entrepreneurs. From their life stories we came across characteristics/behaviours that were important for the success of the entrepreneurs. They were independent, decision makers, innovators, competitors, had high social skills and had help from mentors. These characteristics/behaviour expressed themselves in different manners with the entrepreneurs. We realized it would not be fair to connect them generally to all entrepreneurs since they are so wide and can fit many different types of people. We did, however realize that they instead of a requirement could make a good foundation for entrepreneurship.
