Author: DeMartino, Richard; Barbato, Robert
Abstract: This study compares men and women, who intend to become entrepreneurs. Intending entrepreneurs who have graduated with an MBA from a top tier Business School were compared to mitigate differences in backgrounds. Intending entrepreneurs are compared to non-entrepreneurs for both men and women. The study focuses on career motivators of intending entrepreneurs and the finding both support and refute previous literature. Among the findings: intending women were not more dissatisfied with their careers, and they did possess different career motivators and intentions than women who did not indicate an intention to become entrepreneurs. The difference between intending and non-intending women matched a similar pattern between intending and non-intending men.
