Abstract

The aim of the paper is to analyze the changes in the structure and strategies of small early entrepreneurs under crisis. The research structure is based on the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) definition of entrepreneurship and its application to the analysis of entrepreneurship potential in Russia. Novelty of this work would include the differentiation of some important issues of early entrepreneurship by settlement types into five groups (rural areas, small towns, medium-sized towns, big cities and megapolises). The socio-psychological characteristics of Russian potential and early-stage entrepreneurs have the most significant but rather ambiguous impact on total business activity. On the one hand, the fear of failure is very strong: the maximum level is expected among potential entrepreneurs in rural areas. On the other hand, the vast majority of potential and early-stage entrepreneurs considers to have knowledge and skills to open a new business. The main indicators of starting business are social networks, perceived capabilities and a principal source of income. Under crisis the impact of perceived capabilities and social networks has increased in rural areas and cities. The results of the research can be applied in various governmental and regional assistance programs in Russia where the type of settlement would be considered as one of the main differentiating factor.
