Positive Organizational Behavior (POB) and entrepreneurship are both making na effort to be aknowledged as reference fields in organizational researh. Stil, both these research disciplines can benefit from improvements at the conceptual, methodological and practice levels. Based on an analysis of the state of the art of these two fields, this article aims to present synergies between POB and entrepreneurship, in order to contribute to a more sustained development of each of these disciplines. POB might benefit from entepreneurship by introducing a concern with the societal impact, a more integrated approach, and a temporal perspective in the study of psychological capabilities. Enterpreneurship research can be enriched by evidencing POB’s use of clear success criteria, a concern with methodological reliability and a developmental view of entrepreneurs characteristics.

Keywords : positive organizational behavior; entrepreneurship; synergies.
