Risikobereitschaft und Unternehmenserfolg


  • Marco Caliendo
  • Frank M. Fossen
  • Alexander S. Kritikos


Neu gegründete Unternehmen halten sich besonders lange am Markt, wenn die Gründer eine mittlere Risikobereitschaft aufweisen. Dies zeigt eine aktuelle empirische Studie. Sind die Unternehmer sehr risikoscheu oder aber besonders risikofreudig, hat dies negative Auswirkungen auf die Überlebensdauer des Unternehmens. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit des frühzeitigen Scheiterns ist dann deutlich höher.
