Abstract: The rigour-relevance divide remains a longstanding concern for the entrepreneurship field. In this article we elucidate the practice of “we” in entrepreneurship scholarship and propose a means to encourage and realise it. Our contribution is in the combination of reflection (content reflection, process reflection, and premise reflection) and design science phases; thus, we develop and outline the concept and communal practice of entrepreneurial scholarship informed by a structured reflection framework. Our original model and related framework detail a series of overlapping phases of inquiry and questioning, demonstrating how can we work together with non-academics to collectively strengthen the relevance of entrepreneurship scholarship and, ultimately, be more accountable and relevant to those whom we research.
