SOTA Review

Entrepreneurial Health and Wellbeing. SOTA Review No 29

Issues of employee mental health and well-being have received considerable recent attention. Much less attention has been paid to well-being among entrepreneurs despite the combination of risk and anxiety which starting a business may involve. Entrepreneurial well-being has been defined as "a positive and distinctive mental state that reflects entrepreneurs' affective and cognitive experiences of engagement in entrepreneurship as the process of venture creation". We review the existing evidence on different aspects of entrepreneurial well-being and identify gaps in the evidence base on this ‘darker side’ of entrepreneurial activity.
