The tendency has been for scholars in business related disciplines to confine and approach the study of entrepreneurship from business management or economic perspective whereas discourses within and around entrepreneurship can only be robust and context-relevant if approached from a multidisciplinary perspective. This work is an attempt to subject discussions within the discipline to some sociological import. In considering entrepreneurship from a sociological standpoint, two approaches were adopted: the supply side and the demand side. Although these approaches view entrepreneurship differently, they both have sociological implications.
