Abstract

Nowadays, entrepreneurship, as an important economic and social phenomenon and as a contemporary discipline, has been studied and researched in both developed and developing countries, among policymakers and academic researchers (Fayolle and Gailly 2008). Peter Drucker, a well-known Entrepreneurship and Management guru, has said, “Entrepreneurship is not magic, it is not mysterious, and it has nothing to do with genes. It is a discipline and like any discipline, it can be learned” (Drucker 1985; Valerio et al. 2014).
