Hypothesis 2.2: Previous experience in the industry will not increase the likelihood of successful entrepreneurship. The hypothesis can neither be confirmed nor dismissed.

Suggestions for future research: It would be interesting to do the study on a larger scale, with more number of respondents would study demonstrate clearer connection. Further research could also involve more factors for business success in order to get a broader view on the definition of success. Another interesting approach for future research might be to explore how the distinction between different fields look like, instead of only one industry in this study. Other industries. It would be interesting to do a similar study on a completely different industry or small business to see what the result is then.
