Document Type : Original Article


Entrepreneurship development has become one of the most important and fundamental strategies in most developed and developing countries. Studies suggest that organizational, economic, cultural, and political factors play a major role in increasing entrepreneurship in countries. The aim of this paper is to analyze the policies of the resistance economy with an entrepreneurial approach. In this regard, the strategy of entrepreneurship and its economic outcomes and consequences were examined first using the library method. Then, the models of resistance economy, resistance economy strategy model based on FDREM model, Adel Peyghami’s Model, resistance economy models at community, P.E.O.P.L.E.S model as an independent model of socio-economic resistance, the conceptual model of resistance economy at community, and conceptual model of resistance economy with an emphasis on organizational agility were analyzed.  Studies show that resistance economy is a discourse that seeks to strengthen, de-crisis, and repair existing worn-out and inefficient economic structures and institutions, which public belief and participation and application of rational and prudent management practices are certainly precondition and requirement for this purpose. In other words, a resistance economy involves reducing dependence and insisting on the benefits of domestic production and striving for self-reliance. Entrepreneurship means creativity in work and creating new economic and productive opportunities and creating new value by risk-taking in financial resources. It is one of the factors of economic boom.
