In our response to grand challenges of our times, particularly those posed by emergencies, entrepreneurial approaches are seen as a critical component, which is broadly discussed within the research stream on compassionate entrepreneurship. Our literature review is aimed at exploring the emerging concept of compassionate entrepreneurship in greater detail to solidify its underlying dimensions and establish it as a sub-field within entrepreneurship. This development paper is the first step in this regard, where we identify couple of emerging research streams, use the Antecedents-Decisions-Outcomes (ADO) framework to summarize a sample of key articles on this topic and outline couple of key areas for future research.
