Abstract

The starting point of our study is entrepreneurial intention. The research on this topic is really prolific and mostly focuses on how individual ground their intention to create a company depending on their age (Kautonen et al., 2013), their social status (Fayolle & Gally, 2009) and other psychological variables (Kolvereid, 1996; Autio et al., 1997; Krueger et al., 2000; Von Gelderen et al., 2008…). However, despite the identification of the link that exists between the perception an individual can have on his environment and his entrepreneurial intention, researches on the formation of entrepreneurial intention within different contexts are still missing and open a wide avenue for future research on entrepreneurial intention (Kautonen et al., 2013).

Based on the TPB model (Azjen, 1991) and the latest adaptations that have been developed by Kautonen et al. (2013), this research focuses on entrepreneurial intention within highly uncertain environments. It also focuses on the impact of anxiety about the future individuals might develop on their entrepreneurial intention and the antecedents that determine this entrepreneurial intention within such an atmosphere.
