CORTEZ, Pedro Afonso; VEIGA, Heila Magali da Silva  and  SALVADOR, Ana Paula. Impact of personality and junior enterprise to stimulate potential entrepreneurs. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.2, pp. 179-192. ISSN 1809-5267.

Entrepreneurship is relevant because it is a professional alternative in a precarious labor market. For that, we aimed to explore the impact of psychological and contextual variables to maximize entrepreneurship. We identified the personality factors and academic experiences capable of predicting the development of student entrepreneurial potential. We also analyzed entrepreneurial potential, personality (Big Five) and academic experiences of 323 undergraduate students. Results showed that the factors conscientiousness, extroversion, openness to experiences and amity, with the experiences in junior enterprise, presented positive prediction in entrepreneurial potential. The factor neuroticism presented a negative relation. We evidenced that personality factors and higher education experiences are important to develop entrepreneurial potential. For that, we suggested interventions to maximize self-regulation and academic experiences like junior enterprises to stimulate students' entrepreneurial potential.

Keywords : Big five; Junior Enterprise; Entrepreneurial Education; Entrepreneurship; Innovation.
