Over the past few decades, entrepreneurship scholars have directed their focus to understanding the process by which individuals decide to pursue careers in entrepreneurship. However, surprisingly few studies have been conducted that focus on the role and influence of incubator experience on individual career intentions. Adopting a social cognitive theory (Bandura, 1986) perspective, this study empirically examines the factors that influence entrepreneurial career intentions through the interactions between individual cognitive factors (achievement motivation, risk-taking propensity, entrepreneurial self-efficacy) and entrepreneurial munificence, defined as the scarcity or abundance of critical resources needed by entrepreneurs to operate within an environment.
