Sample text

All four types are hypothesized to contribute to reaching entrepreneurial success with a venture that experiences substantial growth. This is the typology which guided our research and which that research tested. ’’ Subsequent work may well add more inherent characteristics to the four lists. Chapter 3 extends the theory by considering the routes to success that fit each type, and the pitfalls that exist along those routes. Hypotheses dealing with the case where multiple types exist in the same person are set forth.

There is a frequent feeling that somehow the psychological findings, even if highly valid, have not been put together or packaged in the right way. The potential is there, but something is missing. Finally, a number of reviewers criticize entrepreneurship researchers for failing to find distinguishing characteristics that set entrepreneurs apart from other groups—especially managers. This is unwarranted criticism insofar as predicting entrepreneurial success is concerned. If one wishes to understand, predict, and influence people toward entrepreneurial success, the only comparison that matters is between successful and less successful or failed entrepreneurs.

Desire to Obtain Information and Learn. As manifested in the personal achiever, this is not the scholarly dedication of the intellectual; nor is it a love of learning, any learning, for its own sake. It is a very practical and pragmatic desire to acquire any and all information that will make the venture more successful. These people will work very hard to find out things that they believe will contribute to running the business more effectively. The importance of learning of this kind as new ventures develop is discussed at length in Woo, Daellenbach, and Nicholls-Nixon (1994).
