  5. 5. Entrepreneurship as a Career : An investigation into the pre-entrepreneurship antecedents and post-entrepreneurship outcomes among the Science and Technology Labor Force (STLF) in Sweden

    University dissertation from Lund

    Author : Vivek Kumar Sundriyal; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019-11-04]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; entrepreneurial entry; science and technology labor force; incorporated entrepreneurship; careers; bureaucracy; income inequality; returns from entrepreneurship; panel data; quantitative methods;

    Abstract : This dissertation provides a career perspective on entrepreneurship based on the research question: “How do organizational bureaucracy and relative income affect the career choice of entrepreneurship among employees from the science and technology labor force (STLF); and what are the career outcomes in terms of returns during, and post entrepreneurship on re-entry into paid employment?” More specifically, the dissertation investigates (1) how mobility into entrepreneurship versus switching jobs is influenced by the level of bureaucracy in the organization and individual’s relative income compared to similar individuals and (2) how labor market returns after a period in entrepreneurship are influenced by the duration and number of prior spells in entrepreneurship, as well as the level of bureaucracy in the employer organization prior to and after entrepreneurship. Based on a matched employer-employee dataset (1990-2008) provided by Statistics Sweden, the results suggest that organizationalbureaucracy and income inequality markedly influence an employee’s career choice of entrepreneurship versus a job switch, as well the initial income and entry size in entrepreneurship.
