In this video Zulaicha Parastuty and Dieter Bögenhold discuss their recent research presented at the Annual Global Research Workshop on Freelancing and Self-Employment 2018.
Their research examines the key intentions for entering self-employment and entrepreneurship in a set of different countries.
They find that the intention to enter self-employment is less determining for entrepreneurial potential than other factors such as feasibility (believing that chances to create and manage a start-up are realistic) and stability (willingness to defend the implementation of a start-up even against a hostile environment of family and friends).
