The study uses a theoretical framework to distinguish the different team processes phases. In addition, a qualitative approach is used in gathering the primary data of this paper. Through ten in-depth semi-structured interviews, six people out of three companies were interviewed. The gathered information was analysed by using a narrative approach. This aimed to ease the comparison between the already existing theory on team processes and on the same topic but in entrepreneurial context. The findings of this paper recognize not only some similarities in the literature of team processes and team processes in an entrepreneurial context but also identify some differences between both. The results of this research led to both advancing the already existing literature on the topic and identifying areas in which future studies may focus on. (Less)
