Second, leading entrepreneurship involves the decisions made by a leader of an entrepreneurial venture inside the firm.

Pedagogical Objectives:
- To describe the challenges when leading entrepreneurs inside established firms and when leading an entrepreneurial venture inside a firm - To explain the difference between organisational contexts for competitive entrepreneurship vs. collaborative entrepreneurship - To offer levers available to managers to effectively lead entrepreneurial ventures
