Recent advances in digital technologies have transformed various aspects of entrepreneurship, such as the locus of entrepreneurial agency, or boundaries of products and services. This has created new room for entrepreneurial activity, referred to as digital entrepreneurship. Despite the growing importance of digital entrepreneurship, our understanding of the digital component in digital entrepreneurship remains limited. Extant research offers limited guidance for addressing questions pertaining digital entrepreneurship, as underlying assumptions are increasingly being challenged. This short paper reports on a study with the intention to explore the role of digital technologies in shaping the trajectories and shifts thereof of emerging digital entrepreneurial firms. We intend to employ an exploratory design, drawing on several cases of digital entrepreneurship to develop a new theoretical perspective that regards the unique characteristics of digital technologies. In doing so, we seek to determine the mechanisms by which digital technologies shape entrepreneurial trajectories and shifts thereof.
