The purpose of this chapter is to explore a shaped fates perspective of entrepreneurial activity. The perspective, informed by actor network theory (ANT), overcomes the historical and artificial separation of agent and structure. In order to provide insight into the potential of a shaped fates approach, three different accounts of a new venture opportunity are provided and analyzed, the result of which is a realization that the ANT account offers novel and productive insights about entrepreneurial opportunities that cannot be obtained via the received perspectives. Thus we propose a shaped fates research direction and suggest implications for researchers and practitioners.
