Abstract Hybrid entrepreneurship—where an individual simultaneously engages in startup activities as well as wage-based employment—is an increasingly common career transition path. Yet, relatively little research has explored entrepreneurial characteristics during these unique career transitions. We provide exploratory insight into the longitudinal relationship between self-efficacy and persistence for hybrid entrepreneurs’ (N = 29) across a twenty-week period during which aspiring entrepreneurs...
Abstract Entrepreneurial ecosystems (EEs) are receiving intense attention. However, the revitalization of inactive EEs in unmunificent contexts is understudied. To investigate this phenomenon, an inductive study was conducted of a once-vibrant EE that became dormant because of an undiversified industrial base and a precipitous decline in its regional economy. The study revealed that the community members working to revitalize the city’s EE (“EE champions”) used a holistic collection of economic,...

Abstract Several biases are known to influence funding decisions in crowdfunding. Among these biases is herding behavior; that is, the tendency to imitate the funding decisions of others. Herding is a very robust phenomenon in crowdfunding and uniformly characterized as a positive reinforcement effect. We challenge this characterization and ask whether the funding decisions of others may in fact have a negative effect and lead to a reduction of follow-up funding decisions if they are very small ...

Abstract In recent years there has been a growing interest in understanding the relationship between subjective well-being and self-employment. Extending this body of work, we ask whether subjective well-being is associated with financial well-being for self-employed individuals, and whether those with financial skills are better able to leverage subjective well-being to realize higher financial well-being. Using a sample of 332 self-employed individuals in the Consumer Financial Protection Bure...

Abstract Our study uses cognitive mapping techniques to take into account how the same/opposite gender influences the cognitive evaluations of venture capitalists (VCs). Contrary to what has often been discussed in previous entrepreneurship literature, our results report women VCs evaluate women entrepreneurs more critically, and men VCs evaluate men entrepreneurs more critically. However, overall, the VCs' vaguer processing and lower rating of women's venturing compared to men's indicate a gene...

Abstract A social impact bond (SIB) is a new type of outcome-based social investment mechanism for enterprises operating in the social economy. They have grown across the developed world, yet its complexity may prevent from fulfilling their promises. This is particularly the case when SIB-pertinent regulatory frameworks, actors and social problems are ill-defined as in the case of emerging economy contexts. In this paper we ask, how can policy agents better identify, prioritize and weight social...
Abstract Much research has been conducted studying entry into self-employment and the corresponding rewards and consequences of self-employment on earnings. The literature finds mixed results regarding whether workers enter self-employment to maximize their pecuniary or their non-pecuniary benefits. This paper suggests that whether workers are able to increase their pecuniary or non-pecuniary benefits in self-employment depends on their motivations for entering self-employment in the first place...
