Entrepreneurship has become a specific field of research in Economics since the beginning of the 1980s.

A new economic dynamics should be ensuing from a radical economic and political change. Thus, the challenge was to find a new economic dynamics based on a new institutional structure, aimed to promote free markets and private initiative.
