Research on entrepreneurial learning often stresses the role of experience and previous knowledge. We aim to advance this perspective by pointing out the prerequisites and limitations of experience-based forms of learning and by adapting findings from educational psychology to the entrepreneurial context. Developing a model of self-regulated entrepreneurial learning (SREL) we pursue a more process oriented view of entrepreneurial learning in order to explain how learning unfolds in contexts of uncertainty and novelty when relevant experience and knowledge are scarce. The model comprises a planning, a performance and a review phase in order to support entrepreneurs in their learning process. It is suggested how SREL is related to self-efficacy, emotions and cognitive biases.
