Abstract: Entrepreneurship has lately become a buzzword, and emphasis is being placed on ensuring the success of entrepreneurial ventures through both financial and non-financial means. This study aims to critically review and provide insights into the key developments in the literature on entrepreneurial success. The review employs bibliometric methods and content analysis on 595 research articles extracted from the Scopus Database for the period 1996 to 2021. The findings of the study highlight the growth trends of publications on entrepreneurial success, the most impactful articles, journals, and countries working in this domain as well as the evolution of entrepreneurial research topics over the years. Six clusters, representing major themes that have been explored in the literature in the past 26 years, are uncovered through content analysis. Future research agendas have been elaborated based on the emerging topics of study.
