Abstract

This article is premised on the underlying notion that knowledge is crucial to the opportunity recognition and development process. Springboarding from the insights of Atkinson and Stiglitz (1969) on the localized nature of knowledge accumulation, we define a feasible solution space and examine the implications of entrepreneurial knowledge in the recognition and development of opportunity within this space. Distinguishing between two forms of entrepreneurial knowledge, namely context dependent idiosyncratic knowledge or tacit knowledge, and codified knowledge, the primary aim of this article is to propose a knowledge-based model of opportunity within a bounded solution space. Our discussion of this model includes laboration on how the composition of entrepreneurial knowledge predicts major path differences for the expansion and development of opportunities.
