Abstract

Starting a business, launching a new product or venture, or becoming an entrepreneur is a goal expressed by many people sometime during their career. Such goals are often among the two or three career alternatives being considered by business students during the exploration stage of their career (e.g. ages 17 to 30). Yet relatively little information is available in the career choice literature about the distinctive aspects of an entrepreneurial career. Because an entrepreneurial career places many unique demands on those who pursue it, it is important to know how entrepreneurs might differ from non‐entrepreneurs and how an entrepreneurial context differs from a mature business context.
