Abstract

Entrepreneurship represents an interesting way of developing professionally and personally: people have different levels of aptitudes; they are led to be entrepreneurs for various motivations, and put specific behaviours to use. The sample consists of 100 users of the Chamber of Commerce’s New-Entrepreneurial-Service in Verona who were interviewed by telephone. The first results reveal that successful entrepreneurs are (significantly): less willing to conciliate work and family, more intent upon realizing new ideas, and more oriented to a working without a boss (effects of age and educational qualifications are reported) and present different entrepreneurial aptitude levels related to behaviour (i.e. difficulty in information research, management of bureaucracy…).
