We aim to shed light on the deep mechanisms that keep individual entrepreneurs in the creative and cultural industries motivated in this insecure and fast-paced environment. We collect data through a survey of entrepreneurs working in the Dutch creative and cultural industries (CCI) and examine what motivates these professionals to work in an environment characterized by tough competition. Specifically, we analyse our respondents' self-perceived (creative and entrepreneurial) competences and nee...

ABSTRACTThe present study examines students’ attitudes toward entrepreneurship education. The context of the study are the arts, where we empirically test whether different dimensions of arts entrepreneurship education are recognized by students from higher music education institutes in the Netherlands.

The authors developed tailor-made survey scales and conducted a Prisoner’s Dilemma experiment with 45 cultural and creative entrepreneurs in the Netherlands.

textabstractOne of the most-discussed tensions in the cultural and creative industries is that between art and commerce, creativity and business, the artistic and the economic logic. This paper investigates in how far this discrepancy manifests itself in young musicians’ career identities. Based on extant qualitative research, we distinguish between bohemian and entrepreneurial career identities. The goal of our study is to understand whether the two compete (stand in tension) or cohere (harmoni...

The cultural and creative industries (CCI) are seen as an important growth-promoting vehicle in modern policymaking circles. However, creative firm growth is still largely an enigma, with only little across-firm variance being explained in the extant literature. This theoretical essay reviews what is known, and explains why the creatives and their industries are a very special case. Specifically, we argue that both the micro-level motivational drive of the typical creative and the meso-level opp...
