Abstract

Purpose – Since the first definition of Open Innovation (OI), the indivisible relationship between this concept and entrepreneurship was undeniable. However, the exact mechanisms by which an entrepreneurial approach may benefit OI processes and vice versa are not yet fully understood. The study aims to offer an accurate map of the knowledge evolution of the OI-entrepreneurship relationship and interesting gaps to be filled in the future.
Design/methodology/approach – The study adopted a bibliometric analysis, coupled with a systematic literature review performed over a data set of 106 peer-reviewed articles published from 2005 to 2020 to identify thematic clusters.
Findings – The results show five thematic clusters: entrepreneurial opportunities, organisational opportunities, strategic partnership opportunities, institutional opportunities, and digital opportunities for OI. Investigated each of them, the authors created a framework that highlights future avenues for further developing the topic.
Originality/value –This study is the first of its kind to systematise, analyse and critically interpret the literature concerned to the topic of the OI-entrepreneurship
