Innovative entrepreneurship as a way to meet professional dissatisfactions
AbstractThe creation of an innovative firm as a way to remedy the professional dissatisfactions of salaried people has been evoked early in the literature (Shapero 1975, 1977). In this paper, while covering the « elementary components » of global dissatisfactions we focus on eight specific fields: creativity, intellectual stimulation and variety related to the expression of intellectual capacities ; management, independence, prestige characterizing the attachment to executive job ; altruism and tangible work related to the purpose of work (helping others and getting concrete results of one’s labor). Results show that the creation of innovative firms takes place as an effective way to solve in some fields « what was not going well » in the salaried work. These results make it possible to detect profiles of salaried people looking for professional change who might be interested by the wide possibilities offered by the innovative firm for their choice of new orientations.
