Entrepreneurship plays a crucial role in economic development, job creation, and social welfare.

Experimental evidence on entrepreneurial skills and cognitions

An important perspective in Entrepreneurship research focuses on the entrepreneurial mindset, underlying skills and cognitions, and the potential to train these skills. What is particularly needed are experimental designs that develop and test a certain training method in randomized-controlled trials. This can deliver important implications for practice and education, given that entrepreneurship education has become a key topic on the political agenda around the globe.
