Do balanced skills help nascent entrepreneurs to make progress in the venture creation process?

By Michael Stuetzer, Maximilian Goethner and Uwe Cantner


We apply Lazear’s jack-of-all-trades theory to investigate the effect of nascent entrepreneurs´ balanced skill set across various functional areas on the performance of nascent projects. Analyzing longitudinal data on innovative nascent projects, we find that nascent entrepreneurs with a more balanced skill set are more successful in that they progress faster in the venture creation process
