We tested our hypotheses using data from the 2005 European Patent Survey (Pat Val). Our estimation sample is made up of 876 observations including 83 employees who transitioned to entrepreneurship and 793 who stayed at the parent firm. We test our hypotheses using the linear probability model (LPM) as well as the conditional logit model. Both models allow for conditioning on the firm characteristics (firm fixed effects).
