Reviewing the literature, one can see evidence of inter-relationship competencies in the development processes of entrepreneurial competenciesand entrepreneurial learning that support them. Therefore, it is essential to understand how these processes occur. Therefore, this study aims to make a contribution to improve entrepreneurship literature, presenting a conceptual research model that integrates models of entrepreneurial competenciesand models of entrepreneurial learning processes.
