What (did we do)?
A comparative study on the antecedents of EI among young people (students of economics and business) in four selected South East European countries (Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and BiH).
Entrepreneurship is positively associated with higher economic development.
Analysis of the determinants of entrepreneurship is an obligation...(Grilo and Irigoyen, 2006), because: knowledge of the determinants is crucial for development of better education systems and setting up public policies and their evaluation (Storey, 2003).
Intentions are considered the single best indicator of actual behavior (Ajzen, 1991).
High rates of youth unemployment.
Preference for work in public institutions or large organizations.
Trying to answer different questions related to intentions and start-up business:
„Why are some people more than others inclined to become entrepreneurs?“ (Turker, Selcuk, 2009);
Why do some people recognize opportunity easier than others?
Who becomes entrepreneur by opportunity and who - entrepreneur from necessity?
Which course of action should be taken to nurture entrepreneurship?
