One of the aspects of the emergence of entrepreneurship is entrepreneurship in the field of tourism, which according to global statistics tourism is one of the largest and fastest growing industries in the world. Tourism businesses, like any other type of business, face challenges that require planning. One of the challenges is preparing for crises and trying to survive, and it is therefore essential that organizations prepare and plan for risk identification. In fact, organizations need to improve their resilience. The main purpose of this study is to design an entrepreneurship development planning model with a strategic resilience approach in start-up tourism businesses, which has been done with the data-based method. The statistical population consists of experimental and academic experts who were selected by purposive sampling method and the data collection process was performed using in-depth interviews. The extracted concepts were analyzed in three steps of open, axial and selective coding, and finally, by extracting, combining and combining the concepts and their classification, a paradigmatic model of the research was presented. Finally, some proposals were presented with the aim of promoting entrepreneurship development with a strategic resilience approach in start-up tourism businesses.
