Abstract

Despite considerable research, the current state regarding how and in which context prior entrepreneurial exposure impacts the entrepreneurial process is unclear. The present paper's goal is to systemize and discuss extant quantitative-empirical research on the role of prior entrepreneurial exposure in the entrepreneurial process to clarify the current state, identify research gaps, and offer future research directions. Results from the systematic literature review of 69 quantitative-empirical journal articles suggest that prior findings are ambiguous and theoretical shortcomings exist. We contribute to the literature by clarifying the current state and by offering directions for entrepreneurship research and practitioners promoting entrepreneurial activity.
