Economic development depends on the allocation of entrepreneurial resources to efforts to discover new profit opportunities. Limited entrepreneurial attention is allocated between maintaining current activities and starting new activities. This paper addresses the problem of allocating limited entrepreneurial attention in a variety of contexts. The issues that are addressed are product improvement and new product development; the choice of career as an innovative entrepreneur, a managerial entrepreneur or a salaried employee; the venture capitalist's attention to current and new ventures and funds; the writing of internal contracts and market contracts and the supervising of current employees and hiring additional employees.
