Abstract

The present research investigates whether the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) (Ajzen, 1991) and the model of the entrepreneurial event (SEE) (Shapero & Sokol, 1982) can be integrated into one model of entrepreneurial intentions. Furthermore, it is investigated whether different definitions of entrepreneurial intent, i.e. the intention to become self-employed and the intention to start a business make a difference in the model. Specifically, our research focuses on two research questions:

(1) Are employment status choice intentions different from or similar to intentions to start a business?

(2) How are the independent variables from the two intention models in question, related to each other and to entrepreneurial intentions?
