To be an entrepreneur supposes a special sense of forecast, a certain attitude regarding the activity carried out as well as unique responsibilities. Over time, a problem in entrepreneurship research has been the difficulty of defining the concept of entrepreneurship. Therefore, inquiries into the evolution of this concept have become one of the most popular fields of research in management studies. This paper presents a historical outline of entrepreneurship from a conceptual perspective, concentrating on whether past and current entrepreneurship theories can adequately embrace forms and patterns of entre­preneurship.
