dc.description.abstractThis dissertation includes three essays and focuses on nascent entrepreneurship, that period in an entrepreneur's pursuit between first taking an action to form a venture and either getting the venture operational or abandoning the venture pursuit. The dissertation addresses three different aspects of drivers that influence the outcome of the nascent entrepreneur phase. Two of the three essays address influencers of new venture creation, while the third essay investigates influencers of the "still trying" outcome of nascent entrepreneurship. Drawing on neo-classical economics, the theory of planned behavior and complex adaptive systems theory the essays integrate and extend existing theory, and break new ground in the study of “still trying” nascent entrepreneurs.en_US
