Abstract:     
The purpose of this paper is to examine if the bisociative thinking ability of an entrepreneur mediates the relationship between alertness and opportunity discovery in a sample of 65 high technology firms. Results indicated that bisociative thinking ability mediates the relationship between alertness to business ideas and opportunity discovery but not the relationship between alertness to information and opportunity discovered. Implications for research and practice are also discussed.
