Abstract

The impact of career motivations on entrepreneurial intention and action remains in need of being investigated conjointly. Using a large sample and follow-up data collected five years later, we investigate their influence on the entrepreneurial involvement of young adults, from the expression of an intention to entrepreneurial action. We show that only the search for job security seems to have a persistent effect throughout the process. In addition, autonomy is associated with the formation of intention, while wanting to manage full processes is related to actual start-up participation. We discuss the theoretical and practical implications.
