Description

Scholars have been proposing that different types of value are being created through the selfish or selfless motivations behind entrepreneurial activity. Yet, conceptualizations of entrepreneurs as purely motivated by either self- or other-oriented motives based on the legal status of the ventures or the claims of the entrepreneurs themselves can obscure the richness of underlying entrepreneurial motivations and their effect on entrepreneurial outcomes. Furthermore, self- and other-oriented motives need not be mutually exclusive, but can instead independently as well as jointly affect the value created and captured by entrepreneurs. The present study treats both self- and other-oriented motives of entrepreneurs as continuous and independent variables, and measures their impact on consequential entrepreneurial behaviors and outcomes.
