Creativity is an indispensable component in the entire entrepreneurial process (e.g. Shalley & Perry-Smith, 2008; Sternberg & Lubart, 1999). Nevertheless, on the nexus on entrepreneurship and creativity mostly theoretical research (e.g. Lumpkin et al., 2004; Ward, 2004) can be observed. Few empirical studies assessed creative tendency among entrepreneurs and other occupational groups (e.g. Caird, 1991) while others examined creativity in Entrepreneurship (Education) (e.g. Yar et al., 2008; Miner et al., 1994) with personality tests. Consequently, our study aims at contributing to a more focused research attention on individual creativity among entrepreneurs by a valid creativity performance test.
