Abstract by Nadav Shir, Carol D. Ryff

As a self-organizing act, entrepreneurship is a significant feature of and force within modern life that is intimately related to individuals’ growth, development, and well-being. We present a dynamic perspective on entrepreneurship and eudaimonic well-being, anchored in philosophical and psychological views on the essence of well-being as well as the essence of entrepreneurship as a value-driven form of agency. Drawing on the action-phase model, which we adapt to the venture creation phases of deliberation, planning, implementation, and reflection, key propositions are developed regarding how, and under what conditions, core aspects of psychological well-being come into play along the enterprising process.
