Enhancing self-efficacy for entrepreneurship and innovation: an educational approach


This paper reports on the Enterprisers programme, a five-day, extra-curricula educational event supported by CMI and designed to increase entrepreneurial capabilities and intent. The pre-, post-, and six month follow-up survey design is outlined, and the concepts of entrepreneurial self- confidence and skills self-confidence are described. The results show that the Enterprisers events had a substantial and persistent impact on participant self-confidence to become entrepreneurs, but the programme had only a limited impact on entrepreneurial intention. A discussion includes attention to the implications of this work for the model of self-efficacy and intent found in the literature
