Just do it : action's central role in venture creation
Gordon, Scott R. (2012) Just do it : action's central role in venture creation. In The Joint ACERE-DIANA International Entrepreneurship Conference, 31 January – 3 February 2012, University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, WA.
This study examined the effect that venture creation action has on the outcomes of nascent entrepreneurship. A theoretical model was developed which proposes action as a fundamental mechanism in venture creation. Thus, action should rightly be considered as a means rather than an end in itself. In this respect, action transmits the effects of venture resource endowments on to venture creation outcomes. This conceptual model was empirically supported in a random sample of nascent ventures. Ventures with higher levels of human or social capital tend to be more active in venture creation. In turn, more active venture attempts are more likely to achieve improved results.
