streszcz., summ.
Celem niniejszej pracy jest integracja koncepcyjnego i empirycznego podejścia do przewidywania i wyjaśnienia intencji przedsiębiorczych. Szczególnie, testowanie modelu, który odpowiada za motywację przedsiębiorcy, jako istotnego czynnika powszechnie pominiętego w aktualnych teoriach z zakresu intencji przedsiębiorczych. Badamy rolę chęci przedsiębiorców (odrębną od koncepcji zamiaru) jako wyznacznika dwóch wyróżniających intencji przedsiębiorczych. Badania te potwierdzają najnowsze wyniki badań, które podkreślają znaczenie identyfikacji intencji w rozpoczęciu działalności gospodarczej o orientacji na rzecz wzrostu w przeciwieństwie do substytucji dochodów. Ponadto, podczas gdy rola emocji stała się ważnym czynnikiem w przedsiębiorczości, przewidywane emocje zyskały bardzo niewiele uwagi w bieżącej literaturze. Wykorzystując próbę badawczą z Kuwejtu, artykuł ten stwierdza, że pragnienie jest silniejszym predyktorem intencji zorientowanych na wzrost dochodów niż intencje zorientowane na substytucję dochodów. Również chęci przedsiębiorcze częściowo i pośrednio wpływają na postawę, spodziewane emocje i intencje przedsiębiorcze. (abstrakt oryginalny)

The purpose of this paper is to integrate conceptual and empirical work on the prediction and explanation of entrepreneurial intentions. Specifically, it tests a model that accounts for the motivation of the entrepreneur, a salient factor commonly omitted in current theories of entrepreneurial intentions. We test the role of entrepreneurial desire (a distinct concept from desirability) as a determinant of two distinctive entrepreneurial intentions. This research corroborates recent findings that highlight the importance of identifying intentions to start a business with an orientation for growth as opposed to income substitution. Further, while the role of emotions has become an important factor in entrepreneurship, anticipated emotions have received very little attention in the prevailing literature. Using a sample from Kuwait, this paper finds that desire is a stronger predictor of growth-oriented intentions than income-substitution intentions. Also, entrepreneurial desire partially mediates the effects between attitude, anticipated emotions and entrepreneurial intentions. (original abstract)
