In this article, we introduce entrepreneurial capability (EC) as a means of capturing a firm's capacity to sense, select, shape and synchronize its pursuit of opportunities. After defining EC and explaining its dimensions, we propose that its most profound role lies in promoting companies' proactiveness in managing their business ecosystem in order to gain competitive advantages based on their entrepreneurial activities. We then discuss the role of EC in bringing about changes in the nature, domain and timing of competitive games. Finally, we articulate the implications of EC for managerial practices and future entrepreneurship research.
