Entrepreneurial Intention of Individuals Linked to Companies’ Incubators: A Study Based on Planned Behavior

Eduardo Heliodoro Arruda, Carolina Barbosa Montenegro, Cesar Ricardo Maia Vasconcelos


Based on the theory of planned behaviour, the present study aims to understand the entrepreneurial intention of individuals linked to companies’ incubators and to observe the influence of the economic context, the individual entrepreneurial orientation, and the incubator’s actions over their entrepreneurial attitude. This work has a quantitative and descriptive approach, with data collected from a structured questionnaire with a 7-point Likert scale. Structural equation modelling was used to test the hypotheses using the SmartPLS software for data analysis. The practical implications point to using concrete correlation evidence among the constructs to explain the intention and the action of individuals linked to companies’ incubators. Therefore, the statistical results proved that the conceptual model adopted was adequate.
