    Understanding the impact that circular economy can have on the development of innovative entrepreneurship is an interesting but under-researched topic. Despite the growing interest of scholars in business management for trends and scenarios of application of circular economy at level of firms’ business models and dynamics of value creation and capture, exploring its implications and meaning for the conception and execution of innovative entrepreneurship calls for a deeper understanding. Framed in the above assumptions, the chapter aims to contribute to the advancement of the debate on the meaning and implications of circular economy for innovative entrepreneurship. It presents the results of a structured literature review and provides a theoretical conceptual framework for understanding the relevance of innovative entrepreneurship issues in the light of the circular economy transition.
