Title: Motivational factors of intending female and male entrepreneurs
Author: DeMartino, Richard; Barbato, Robert
Abstract: This study examines men and women intending entrepreneurs, who have graduated with an MBA from a top tier Business School. Entrepreneurs are compared to non-entrepreneurs for both men and women. A comparison between entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs with similar backgrounds allows for a more meaningful examination. The study focuses on career motivators of intending entrepreneurs and the findings 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 were not likely to become entrepreneurs. The difference between intending and non-intending women matched a similar pattern between intending and non-intending men.
