Abstract: The current study aims at examining the importance of characteristics that young individuals perceive as a stimulus in undertaking entrepreneurial activity in future. Two widely acknowledged tests, the attitudes toward enterprise (ATE) and the general enterprising tendency (GET) test, served as the research tools in order to draw indications regarding youth's potential entrepreneurial behaviour in the Greek context. Research in a sample of undergraduate students of different backgrounds indicated that the ATE test seems to work better and ranked youth's attitudes in the following order: creativity, achievement, leadership, personal control and intuition. Provided that young individuals increasingly constitute the recipients of entrepreneurial educational and policy initiatives, the current study contributes in several ways and responds to past research calls for the need to design appropriate entrepreneurial supportive processes, but also to effectively measure and evaluate the outcomes of existing entrepreneurial programmes and frameworks.
