Abstract: Transformational entrepreneurship is a distinct kind of entrepreneurship and has an interdisciplinary nature with linkages to anthropology, economics, sociology and regional planning. Entrepreneurs involved in transformations encourage positive action that has a flow on effect, which enables business ventures to deliver outcomes that change the surrounding environment by viewing things in a different way (Ratten et al., 2017). Transformational entrepreneurship is related to the concept of challenge-based entrepreneurship, as it is an important and socially significant type of entrepreneurship that transcends cultural barriers (Anggadwita et al., 2016). Transformation is a popular term used by entrepreneurship practitioners to indicate major changes in society and when combined with entrepreneurship it is presumed to have superior competitive capabilities that influence market performance (Moscardo, 2014). This means that transformational entrepreneurship has a practical, social and theoretical component, which makes it an interesting field of research.
