Research Interest
The doctoral research focuses on social and sustainable entrepreneurship among young adults. The main research question examines the role of values, social networks and education in turning entrepreneurial intentions into behavior among young adults in the context of social and sustainable entrepreneurship. As Europe is facing increasing youth unemployment, turning entrepreneurial intentions into actual behavior could have significant impact on the financial development of the EU. Generation Y (born 1979-1994) has been suggested to be more entrepreneurial than past generations, and in order to utilize their tendency, information regarding the antecedents of entrepreneurial behavior is a must. Moreover, the generation Y has been proposed to value environment and focus on problems in the surrounding society, which in turn highlights the need to introduce other forms of entrepreneurship alongside the conventional entrepreneurship. Engaging young adults into social and sustainable entrepreneurship, and revealing the underlying factors, which impact the intention-behavior connection, could help to solve the most troublesome issues in Europe related to environmental development and society. Moreover, examination of the role of education, could shed light on issues especially in the higher education, which seems to focus on the conventional entrepreneurship, and provide only little knowledge about other entrepreneurial opportunities.
