The object of my research is entrepreneurial mindset - how entrepreneurs formulate their tasks, find solutions for them, and to what consequences such solutions then lead both the entrepreneurs themselves and their organizations.
Here I can think of a historical analogy - we find it hard to believe today - but the greatest trade highway of mankind, the Silk Road, had the right to exist only because of the false assumption that there was no other sea route for the movement of goods from Asia to Europe (and in fact there was).
This delusion gave the Silk Road 15 centuries of competitive advantage. The analogy here is that many entrepreneurs think that there is no other way to develop their business - and I am sure that there are, in fact, many ways. The development of geography has allowed mankind to get rid of many erroneous beliefs, which we cannot yet say about the field of entrepreneurship, in which there are countless false assumptions today. Strange as it may seem, on the modern globe called "entrepreneurship", most of the surface is still white and unexplored.
Despite my Master's degree in Finance, I consider myself more of a researcher and even an "artist" of the entrepreneurial world. I think so because I see many similarities between an artist and an entrepreneur. In entrepreneurship, just as in art, it is impossible to separate the concepts of "Who does" from "What he does".
But unlike art, where an artist creates with brushes and colors, a writer gets magic from words and phrases, and a musician calls on chords and sounds, an entrepreneur has his own "palette" - the whole range of how consumers perceive his products and services. A true artist, just like a true entrepreneur, is himself a source of new ideas, new thoughts and new meanings. The very phenomenon of creativity is the creation of something unprecedented, extraordinary and unique - something that has never existed before. Creativity is the bridge that unites these two different worlds - the world of art and the world of entrepreneurship. The entrepreneur's unique ability to look at an old problem from a new angle and recognize the real source of the problem puts him on a level with outstanding artists.
