International Journal of Business and Globalisation (IJBG), Vol. 11, No. 3, 2013

Abstract: The world today is paying more attention to the economy of the People's Republic of China due to its rapid growth and internationalisation (Deng et al., 2011). In accordance with the expanding literature in this area, the current study examines entrepreneurial intent relative to satisfaction with family life and generalised self-efficacy with regards to Chinese women. This study makes an important contribution to the new venture creation literature by being one of the first to focus on females in a Chinese context and by being among the first to examine generalised self-efficacy as a moderator of the family satisfaction-entrepreneurial intent relationship. Results of a moderated hierarchical regression analysis provide evidence in support of a moderating role for self-efficacy in the relationship between family satisfaction and the intent to start a new business.
