Abstract

In two studies, we investigate if the link between entrepreneurial self-efficacy and entrepreneurial intentions depends on the level of uncertainty in the environment. In Study 1, we exploit the Covid-19 induced lockdown of the Danish society as a natural experiment in a two-wave study. We compare the link between entrepreneurial self-efficacy and entrepreneurial intentions in a cohort of students responding either right before or after the implementation of the lockdown in the second wave. In Study 2 we execute an online vignette experiment based on additional measures and replicate findings from Study 1. The two studies combined show that entrepreneurial self-efficacy is a stronger predictor of entrepreneurial intentions in low uncertainty environments compared to high uncertainty ones.
