  • Engineers learning to become entrepreneurs: stimulations and barriers in Israel. 

    Chorev, Schaul; Anderson, Alistair R. (Inderscience http://dx.doi.org/10.1504/IJCEELL.2006.010956, 2006)
    CHOREV, S. and ANDERSON, A.R., 2006. Engineers learning to become entrepreneurs: stimulations and barriers in Israel. International Journal of Continuing Engineering Education and Lifelong Learning, 16 (5), PP. 321-340.
    This paper explores the processes by which Israeli engineers become entrepreneurs. We employed a qualitative approach, using ethnographic life history interviews with nine entrepreneurial engineers. We find that the ...
