THE ROLE OF EDUCATION, INDIVIDUAL AND ECONOMIC FACTORS IN ENTREPRENEURIAL INITIATIVES: A MICROECONOMIC APPROACH FOR THE CZECH REPUBLIC, SLOVAKIA AND POLAND

Yuriy Bilan, Mihaela Simionescu, Grzegorz Mentel, Zoltan Rozsa

The purpose of this research is to assess the impact of university education and business environment on entrepreneurial initiatives and to make comparisons of the results between students coming from Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. These countries were selected for the analysis since these are three of the V4 countries with common targets regarding the development of business environment and with an important location advantage. The International Visegrad Fund promotes mutual cooperation within the region in various fields, including the development of economic relations (in tourism, education, scientific research, cross-border cooperation). This Fund also implements own projects in these fields. The importance of the research is justified by the identification of the factors that mostly affect entrepreneurial initiatives; these factors could be developed more in order to increase the number of successful businesses in each of these country. Moreover, some obstacles to entrepreneurial initiatives are identified and suitable recommendations are provided to minimize these obstacles.

Slavka T. Nikolić, Nikola Gradojević, Vladimir Đaković, Valentina Mladenović, Jelena Stanković

The notion of entrepreneurship is not new, but entrepreneurship is continuously searching for new ideas while increasing their applications (Morris & Trotter, 1990; Morris, Lewis, & Sexton, 1994). Marketing and entrepreneurship are broadening their field of synergic activity, but some gaps in this interaction still remain (Bhuian, Menguc, & Bell, 2005). Numerous studies have indicated the link between marketing and entrepreneurship (Murray, 1981; Morris & Paul, 1987; Herron, Sapienza, & Smith-Cook, 1992; Hills & LaForge, 1992; Becherer & Maurer, 1998; Morris, Schindehutte & LaForge, 2002; Kraus, Harms, & Fink, 2010; Gilmore, 2011, Hills & Hultman, 2011; Hultman & Hills 2011; Kurgun, Bagiran, Ozeren, & Maral, 2011; Morrish, 2011; Busenitz, Plummer, Klotz, Shahzad, & Rhoads, 2014), but a number of research question have remained underexplored.

CHARACTERISTIC FEATURES OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN SMALL AND MEDIUM-SIZED ENTERPRISES

Remigiusz Kozlowski, Marek Matejun

The operation and growth of small and mediumsized enterprises (SMEs – including micro enterprises) are significantly determined by the characteristic features and internal diversity of this group of entities (Torrès & Julien, 2005; Curran, 2006). The identification of characteristic properties leads to a qualitative and quantitative distinction between small and medium-sized companies from other entities, primarily including large enterprises (LEs) (Marchesnay, 1982; Bannier & Zahn, 2012).

Podnikatelský inkubátor jako nástroj podpory malého a středního podnikání

Petra Taušl Procházková

Malé a střední podnikání (MSP) je specifické řadou problematických oblastí, které toto podnikání doprovází už od jeho počátku. Například Jáč, Rydvalová a Žižka [11, str. 18–19] definují dvě základní příčiny problémů podnikání MSP. Jedná se o: – všeobecné (externí) příčiny – např. nepříznivý ekonomický vývoj, inflace, omezený přístup ke kapitálu, administrativní předpisy, – subjektivní (interní) příčiny – např. nedostatek zkušeností, odborného vzdělání, podcenění výrobní, obchodní strategie, přehnaná optimistická představa o velikosti trhu, nedostatečné řízení personálu, nedostatek odvahy.
