What is it about?

This paper explores the link between entrepreneurial intention and the entrepreneurial interventions commonly provided by higher education institutions. Further, the research considers the intention horizon of students, to determine whether those with entrepreneurial intentions within a different timeframe, require different entrepreneurial interventions. The initial findings highlight the perceived need for a range of entrepreneurship interventions, with business training programmes being the highest priority, followed by mentoring, specialist business advice, low-cost finance, business networking events, and enterprise clubs. The research also shows that those with different entrepreneurial intention horizons request a different portfolio of interventions.

Why is it important?

The research provides further contextualisation as to what entrepreneurship education and support is required for students. The research suggests that institutions need to provide a portfolio of interventions to ensure that they can provide the right stimulus for students with different intention horizons, and institutions need a portfolio of interventions to encourage progression between intention horizons to support and move students toward action.
