Abstract

The early stages of entrepreneurial activity offer invaluable insights into the emergence and development of business opportunities. With converging evidence indicating a key role for " collective intelligence " in predicting team performance across tasks, we seek to reframe the dominant perspective on early entrepreneurial activity to include team characteristics and processes. We also respond to the increasing presence of digital technologies within entrepreneurship education by analysing a unique dataset of student-generated ideas and solutions to real-life problems, whose analysis paints a complex picture of performance at the intersection of psychological, cognitive and behavioural contributors.
