≪Organizer Abstract≫
Across the globe, entrepreneurship, as 21st century skill, has become an important topic in the political agenda. Entrepreneurial skills are widely regarded a meta-competence that young people need to learn to deal with the challenges of the future world of work. Although one central educational goal in many societies focuses on the promotion of entrepreneurship, the role of psychological factors and processes in entrepreneurship is still not fully understood, particularly from an international perspective. This Invited Symposium attempts to bring together research studying the motivation for entrepreneurship in different cultures and continents. The symposium aims at providing a deeper understanding of psychological factors related to entrepreneurship, including the role of values, competencies, and personality differences in context as well as psychological training. The Symposium will discuss the culture-specificity of approaches and results as well as potential implications for entrepreneurship education and support.
