<p>The number of researches of corporate entrepreneurship (CE) have increased after the 1980’s, simultaneously with an increasing number of corporate venturing (CV) researches. One of the consequences of this is sometimes CE is confused with CV, especially in Japan. The purpose of this study is to construct a hypothesis of CE, especially clarifying the scope of the theory and the definition of CE. To clarify the scope and definition, as a research method, we review prior research, mainly by conducting a narrative review and partly conducting a systematic review. The conclusions drawn from this study include the following three points. First, CE consists of three constituents, namely, CV, strategic entrepreneurship, and innovation. Second, the scope of CE is described by the areas, where more than two elements overlap each other. And third, CE is defined as the entrepreneurship conducted by established companies, which include corporate venturing, accompanied by strategic renewal or innovation by established companies.</p>
