Abstract [en]

This paper addresses an answer to the research question: does entrepreneurship education lead to establishment of new firms?. The research in the paper was based on a survey with a questionnaire and the questionnaire was sent to two different groups of respondents, a Respond group (who had completed an entrepreneurship education) and a Control group (who had not passed an entrepreneurship education). The respondents had the same educational background aside from the entrepreneurship education. In addition to the survey three (short) telephone interviews were performed. The paper shows that individuals attending entrepreneurship education are more likely to establish firms, to establish several firms and to create larger firms, compared to the Control group. To sum up the answer to the research question based on results is that entrepreneurship education does indeed lead to the establishment of new firms.
