Drawing on previous literatures in entrepreneurship and information systems, we examine how entrepreneurial intentions develop in emerging technology industries. We find that in addition to traditional determinants of intention such as perceived desirability and perceived feasibility, personal innovativeness in technology and related knowledge and experience of the entrepreneur act as key drivers. Further, our results of the mediation analysis suggest entrepreneurial intentions in emerging technology industries develop through a process incorporating both causation and effectuation principles.
