The fields of Social Entrepreneurship (SE) and Spirituality and Religiosity in the Workplace (SRW) are emerging fields in the area of management. This paper presents an understanding of entrepreneurship derived from an examination of the spirituality literature. Using Perennial Philosophy, this paper offers a framework that provides a new perspective on entrepreneurship. The paper also develops the concept of spiritual entrepreneurship by deriving a parsimonious definition and identifying salient dimensions. It further makes a comparative analysis between commercial entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, institutional entrepreneurship, and spiritual entrepreneurship based on the models suggested by Shane (2000) and Alvarez and Barney (2007).
