Maneuvering towards a framework of entrepreneurship as a career path, first I carried out a systematic review of the literature including both bibliometric and document review. There is a scholarly understanding of entrepreneurship as a career although a great deal of entrepreneurship career research focuses on the founding of a new venture and yet less is known about entrepreneurship as a career path. Emerging works on the entrepreneurship career are disconnected and explain the various dimensions of the entrepreneurship career from the stages of entry, success, and outcomes instead of seeing them as a connected career trajectory. The bibliometric review identified five themes signaling the ongoing semantic conversations with reference to entrepreneurship career. Moreover, through the systematic review of documents, I identified three themes that hint at activities and possible transitions occurring along the entrepreneurship career path. I propose a framework on entrepreneurship as a career path and suggest potential directions for future research.
