    Research on the opportunity recognition stage in the process of entrepreneurships is still in an early stage. This paper is covering the possibility of art as being one of the inspirational sources for entrepreneurs. Once aware of it, an unavoidable observation seems to be: innovative entrepreneurs love art. But is this true? And if it is true what can be the reasons for entrepreneurs to love art? This paper will address these questions by analyzing the data from a project with nine entrepreneurs and nine artists followed by interviews of 14 art-loving entrepreneurs and managers.
