Entrepreneurial Self-Efficacy and Intentions

Entrepreneurial Self-Efficacy and Intentions


Entrepreneurial self-efficacy is measured by a 6-item self-assessment scale. The items on this scale represent competencies related to business/ entrepreneurial success, and were developed based on expert interviews with business leaders (Marlino & Wilson, 2003). Self-ratings in each area are summed and the overall mean used to create a composite entrepreneurship self-efficacy measure.

Entrepreneurial intentions are measured by asking participants to rate their interest in starting/ owning their own business on a 5-point Likert scale (1 = definitely not interested, 5 =extremely interested).
