Organizational Managers and their Returns from Entrepreneurship on Re-Entry into Paid Employment: Evidence from the Science & Technology Labor Force (STLF) in Sweden
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Paper in conference proceeding
Do entrepreneurs benefit post their entrepreneurial careers on re-entry into paid employment? An answer to this question provides a career value of engaging in an entrepreneurial career. Results have so far been inconclusive suggesting that we still do not know whether entrepreneurship pays or not. Using job matching as the main theoretical foundation, this study investigates how the returns from entrepreneurship are likely to be contingent on the re-entry organizational rank (managers versus non-managers) of the entrepreneur re-entering paid employment post a career in entrepreneurship. Additionally, the study investigates how the returns from entrepreneurship are likely to be contingent on the combination of pre-entrepreneurial entry organizational rank and re-entry organizational rank. Matching managers and non-managers from a sample of STLF in Sweden between 1990 and 2008, relative to wage employees with similar observational characteristics, results indicate that upon re-entry into paid employment, entrepreneurs seem to benefit more in managerial ranks suggesting skills from entrepreneurship are likely to provide higher returns in managerial positions.
