THE ECONOMIC RESILIENCE-ENTREPRENEURSHIP NEXUS
Keywords:Economic resilience, Entrepreneurship, Emerging concept
Resilience is an emerging concept used to examine economic performance and responses to exogenous shocks such as the financial crisis and recession. Relying on a review of the literature on emerging academic articles in this field, the article explores how entrepreneurship is key to maintaining a dynamic economy and shows that it stands out in expert debates as a key aspect in creating more resilient economies. Namely, through the development of a conceptual framework we considered the links between economic resilience and entrepreneurship. In line with this economic resilience is analyzed at different levels. As a final result of this analysis, we came to the conclusion that the entrepreneur plays a decisive role in achieving the firm's resilience and economic systems.
