Do balanced skills help nascent entrepreneurs to make progress in the venture creation process?
Stuetzer, Michael, Goethner, Maximilian, & Cantner, Uwe (2012) Do balanced skills help nascent entrepreneurs to make progress in the venture creation process? In The Joint ACERE-DIANA International Entrepreneurship Conference, 31 January – 3 February 2012, University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, WA.
We apply Lazear’s jack-of-all-trades theory to investigate the effect of nascent entrepreneurs´ balanced skill set across various functional areas on the performance of nascent projects. Analyzing longitudinal data on innovative nascent projects, we find that nascent entrepreneurs with a more balanced skill set are more successful in that they progress faster in the venture creation process.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
