Entrepreneurship leads to both economic growth and job creation. Entrepreneurial success is a complex phenomenon that encompasses financial as well as non-financial criteria. However, little is known about the interplay between entrepreneurs, employees and their environment fostering innovation and entrepreneurial success. In addition, there has been a longstanding call for investigating entrepreneurship from a multilevel perspective, including cross-national variables, variables associated with the direct environment of businesses, organizational variables, and individual level variables.


This project will fill these gaps and introduce solutions from a psychological perspective into entrepreneurship research, taking a multilevel perspective. Moreover, our research emphasizes a process perspective and explores the influence of personal resources and entrepreneurial success over time.
