Drawing on narratives and a multi-layered sense-making perspective, this paper explores how students make use of different novel combinations of the two identities "student" and "entrepreneur" in an effort to coordinate these in the process of becoming an entrepreneur. Six grounded practices for combining the identities are proposed and discussed as a way to challenge the meaning attached to the practiced concepts of "student" and "entrepreneur" from a theoretical as well as practical perspective. The practices are organized into a conceptual framework containing the two continuums: "integration/disintegration" and "student and/or entrepreneur".
