This paper reviewed the field of entrepreneurship and proposed four criteria for classifying entrepreneurship sub-fields; the classification criteria include the entrepreneur's work environs wherein the entrepreneur is embedded, the motivation behind the venture, the nature of the opportunity being exploited, and the location of the opportunity. We then strive to advance the concept of the Entrepreneurship Mix by linking these classification criteria to the 4W's which make up the Entrepreneurship Mix (Who, Why, What and Where).
