Determinants of Entrepreneurial Intentions

  • Richard Weber
Part of the Innovation und Entrepreneurship book series (INNOV)


Researchers in the field of entrepreneurship aim at developing a better understanding of individual deliberations regarding the attraction of an entrepreneurial career. The Theory of Planned Behavior has become a widely used theoretical framework to predict entrepreneurial activity and explore the reasons for entering such a career. However, Kolvereid (1996a) and subsequently Souitaris et al. (2007) call for more research to confirm whether their results about the attitudes-intentions link can be generalizable to other contexts. Therefore, to replicate and confirm early results about the linking of entrepreneurial attitudes with intentions I test the Theory of Planned Behavior based on my data in this chapter.
