Abstract

•We develop and validate the Perceived Project Transition Support (PPTS) scale.•The factor structure of the PPTS scale suggests that employees experience prior entrepreneurial project exit and new entrepreneurial project entry as one psychological transition process rather than two separate psychological processes.•The relationship between PPTS and employees' performance assessments of their next completed entrepreneurial project is positively mediated by affective commitment.•The relationship between PPTS and employees' performance assessments of their next completed entrepreneurial project is mediated in curvilinear manner by work stress.•Although PPTS can enhance employees' performance assessments via affective commitment, high PPTS could also impede performance due to their influence on work stress.
