          Entrepreneurial learning from failure: An interpretative phenomenological analysis


          Jason Cope

          This article develops a deeper conceptualisation of the process and content dimensions of learning from venture failure. I propose that recovery and re-emergence from failure is a function of distinctive learning processes that foster a range of higher-level learning outcomes. This qualitative research demonstrates that entrepreneurs learn much not only about themselves and the demise of their ventures but also about the nature of networks and relationships and the โ€œpressure pointsโ€ of venture management. This article also provides evidence that these powerful learning outcomes are future-oriented, increasing the entrepreneurโ€™s level of entrepreneurial preparedness for further enterprising activities.
