In principle entrepreneurs have been viewed as those people who are ready to put everything on the line in order to make their company work "success at all costs". Project managers have felt stuck in the role and often battle to progress to alternative careers. This paper explores the career opportunities for both the entrepreneur and the project manager. It proposes possibilities for project managers to advance to the position of chief executive officer and for the entrepreneur to bring entrepreneurial skill to learning organisations. Recent research and current articles are reviewed and the career outlook for both the project manager and the entrepreneur is explored.
