|Abstract: ||Purpose of paper
To examine how the context, approach and teaching techniques used for entrepreneurship
education need to reflect the different roles that encompass enterprise.
We analyse and reflect upon what attributes, qualities, skills and knowledge are required for
the different roles involved in entrepreneurship.
From our analysis we identify role typologies and argue that teaching entrepreneurship needs
to produce a combination of the creative talents of the artist, the skills and ability of the
