    Hello friends, we are glad to share our recent study titled "Modeling the Significance of Social Support and Entrepreneurial Skills for Determining Entrepreneurial Behaviour of Individuals: A Structural Equation Modeling Approach" which is recently accepted in the "World Journal of Entrepreneurship, Management and Sustainable Development". Although entrepreneurial behaviour is considered a key element for economic development; yet very less is known about the determinants of factors leading towards entrepreneurial intention and behaviour.

    In order to bridge this gap, this study is aimed to investigate the role of social support and entrepreneurial skills in determining entrepreneurial behaviour of individuals. Developing on the base of theory of planned behaviour this study investigates the relationship between social support, entrepreneurial skills and entrepreneurial behaviour along with existing constructs of theory of planned behaviour (i.e. attitude, subjective norms, perceived behavioural control and entrepreneurial intention).

    Findings of this study are a unique step forward and offer new insights towards better understanding of the determinants of entrepreneurial behaviour. Moreover this study extends Ajzen's (1991) theory of planned behaviour (TPB) in the context of entrepreneurial behaviour. By introducing and investigating the impact of two new variables i.e. social support and entrepreneurial skills in theory of planned behaviour and by validating the proposed model with partial least squared, structured equation modeling (PLS-SEM) approach this study have made a size-able theoretical, methodological and contextual contribution in the overall body of knowledge.
