Abstract [en]

During a springboard session, the entrepreneur meets an expert panel which gives himor her strategic advice. How these meetings transpire is of great importance when itcomes to the support of regional, as well as national entrepreneurship and economicgrowth. The purpose of this paper is to investigate what is verbally expressed duringthese meetings and how this can assist entrepreneurship. Eleven different springboardsare investigated via the method of content analysis. These springboards concernedentrepreneurs who merely sought strategic business advice or those who applied forventure capital. The results indicate that the entrepreneurs who applied for venturecapital had less use for the advice than the other group. This can partly be explainedby panel members’ focus on risk and the institutionalized conditions which build on arational discourse.

Abstract [fr]

Lors d’une session de lancement, l’entrepreneur rencontre un panel d’experts qui luifournit des conseils strategiques. Le deroulement de ces rencontres est d’une grandeimportance pour le soutien de l’entreprenariat et la croissance economique, aussi bienaux plans regionaux que nationaux. L’objectif de cet article est d’examiner ce qui estexprime verbalement au cours de ces rencontres et en quoi ce contenu peut soutenirl’entreprenariat. Onze sessions sont examinees a travers la methode d’analyse decontenu. Les personnes concernees etaient des entrepreneurs qui cherchaientsimplement a obtenir des conseils en affaires ou a lever du capital risque. Les resultatsindiquent que les entrepreneurs qui voulaient lever du capital risque utilisaient moinsles conseils que ceux de l’autre groupe. Cela peut s’expliquer en partie par l’inter^etparticulier pr^ete au risque par les membres du panel et par les conditionsinstitutionalisees qui s‘appuient sur un discours rationnel.
