Theorisation of cultural and creative entrepreneurship has been seen to struggle with capturing idiosyncratic elements of entrepreneurship in the cultural and creative sectors. The research presented in this paper investigates three additional entrepreneurship theories, which were developed around respectively professional service firms and social enterprises, and the theory of effectuation. It is hypothesised that these theories taken together produce a perspective not only supportive for developing a framework better geared towards theorising paradoxes in cultural and creative entrepreneurship. The newly developed framework also contains affordances for developing a view on entrepreneurial resilience in the world after COVID.
