Factors Influencing the Entrepreneurial Orientation of Students: An Exploratory Study
T.L. Amos , L. Louw and J.S. Baxter

Abstract:
With entrepreneurship being an important catalyst in wealth creation, it is imperative that entrepreneurs be developed. The aim of this exploratory research is to contribute to our understanding of the development of entrepreneurs and to encourage further research in the area. This paper proposes a model of entrepreneurship and tests the influencing factors on this model. Based on the findings of this research, it appears that entrepreneurial activity of family members influences the development of entrepreneurship more than gender, race, age or education. With education being a logical site for the development of entrepreneurship within society, this finding raises more questions than it provides answers, highlighting the need for educators to critically review the educational process if entrepreneurship is to be a realistic outcome.
