Description: Often we find concepts such as entrepreneurial alertness and entrepreneurial awareness in the literature, while the authors do not always make any distinction between them. This study attempts to find out if those two concepts are really the same, or if they differ in their interpretation of the phenomenon of opportunity identification. It is very unusual for almost all scholars in a particular field of research to agree on a subject to the extent that they do with the belief that the starting point of each and every act of entrepreneurship is the opportunity identification. But here the consensus ends. There are questions to be asked, such as: why do some people recognize opportunities but not others? How does this identification happen? What is the basis for this identification? Are there ways to increase the potential for identification and thus influence entrepreneurship? Does every opportunity identification end with the establishment of a new venture? How does the opportunity identification influence the venture, if at all? Some of these questions have been answered in different studies but usually on a logical and theoretical basis. The purpose of this study is to try to supply empirical answers to a few of those questions. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
