Not Just Domestic Engineers: An Exploratory Study of Homemaker Entrepreneurs

Not Just Domestic Engineers: An Exploratory Study of Homemaker Entrepreneurs There are millions of homemakers in the United States, but there is scant research on the entrepreneurial activities of this important segment of the population. Using data collected through the Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics (PSED), this article explores and discusses the significant differences between full‐time homemakers who intend to start businesses and a comparison group of non‐homemakers who intend to start businesses. In addition to providing a revealing look at this subset of future entrepreneurs, this study illustrates the power of the PSED to allow exploration of unique entrepreneur groups. Following our data analyses, we discuss implications and future research directions to better understand this unique subset of entrepreneurial individuals who are pursuing new ventures. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice Wiley

Abstract

There are millions of homemakers in the United States, but there is scant research on the entrepreneurial activities of this important segment of the population. Using data collected through the Panel Study of Entrepreneurial Dynamics (PSED), this article explores and discusses the significant differences between full‐time homemakers who intend to start businesses and a comparison group of non‐homemakers who intend to start businesses. In addition to providing a revealing look at this subset of future entrepreneurs, this study illustrates the power of the PSED to allow exploration of unique entrepreneur groups. Following our data analyses, we discuss implications and future research directions to better understand this unique subset of entrepreneurial individuals who are pursuing new ventures.
