What explains why some entrepreneurs quit during the process of venture creation? For this study, we explore the reasons nascent entrepreneurs offer for quitting the process of venture creation and we link types of reasons for quitting with prior capabilities and efforts to provide insights into indicators of venture disbanding. We integrate both strategic and behavioral perspectives into a model of venture disbanding. And, we test this model using data from the panel study of entrepreneurial dynamics.
