Research in the space broadly defined as the “psychology of entrepreneurship” has come quite a long way in the past 10 years since the first volume of this book was published. While many topics remain relevant (competencies, cognition, action-orientation, leadership, training, and innovation), the conversation has also shifted to include new topics such as emotions/affect, psychological disorders, biology, identity, well-being, and teams. In this chapter, we first comment on new areas of research that have arisen in the last ten years and the course they may take going forward, before exploring new areas that might inspire research on the psychology of entrepreneurship well into the future.
