We examine the nature of entrepreneurial exit and its impact on the intentions for subsequent recycling activities. We categorize the self-determined reason for exit and track entrepreneurs’ intentions to subsequently re-engage in entrepreneurship based on six types of recycling activities. We find that entrepreneurs with a positive exit (such as harvest) are more passionate about entrepreneurship, more likely to invest in other ventures and more likely to be involved in entrepreneurial recycling. Those that exited for family reasons or other opportunities were significantly less likely to be involved in a new venture. We discuss these and other findings.
