dc.description.abstractThis paper examines an individual’s efforts to start a business and how the “thinking tools” of Pierre Bourdieu aid understanding of the decisions taken during the start-up process. Theoretically challenging work, of which Bourdieu stands accused, might seem at odds with the grounded decision to give up employment to start a business. In this paper we argue there is value in using Bourdieusian ideas to examine individual journeys and endeavours. From an overview of Bourdieu’s work on capital, the paper draws on interviews and diaries to examine the role of different capitals as they inform an individual’s entrepreneurial activities.
