Areas of interest

Sustainable entrepreneurial intentions and behaviors

This study aims to investigate which are the determinants and mechanisms that lead to intend to engage in sustainable entrepreneurship and how these intentions turn into actual behaviors.

Women entrepreneurship

In the last decades, the number of women involved in entrepreneurial activities has increased significantly. We aim at understanding the reasons why these differences between women and men entrepreneurs occur, in particular how sustainable actions play a role in these differences.
