Entrepreneurial Profile and the Level of Individual Entrepreneurship

Kamila Malewska


The aim of this article is to confirm or reject assumptions about the existence of a relationship between the characteristics and abilities of an individual which are listed in the literature as characteristics of an effective entrepreneur, and the level of individual entrepreneurship in managerial practice. The paper is both theoretical and empirical in nature and consists of four main parts. The first part discusses the essence of entrepreneurship. Next, attention is focused on entrepreneurship understood as a complex personal competence and on the qualities characteristic of an effective entrepreneur as proposed in the literature. The third part presents the current state of knowledge relating to the influence of personality traits on an individual’s level of entrepreneurship, citing the findings of other research in this area. Finally, the results obtained by the author as a result of the conducted pilot study are presented. This paper fully corresponds with the issues undertaken within the scope of the European Conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship and contributes to expanding the knowledge relating to the existence of a relationship between entrepreneurial profile and the level of individual entrepreneurship. Moreover, it can also provide inspiration for conducting further empirical research in this area. This study was conducted within the research project “The impact of managerial intuitive potential on the effectiveness of decision making processes”, financed by the National Science Centre, Poland (funds allocated on the basis of decision No. DEC-2014/13/D/HS4/01750).
