This paper explores the contribution of various forms of capital to the development of the entrepreneurial venture. It centres on the influence of human capital, which constitutes the foundation of knowledge-based societies and bears on how entrepreneurs organise and manage new technology and knowledge-based ventures. It extends existing theory on human capital by suggesting that the choice of innovative, strategic, organisational and leadership practices are influenced by one important type of human capital: namely socialisation from being trained to compete in sports involving such factors as physical strength, speed, endurance, a competitive mind, strategising and team spirit; all ingredients necessary in building a new venture. The paper departs from a quantitative dataset, triangulating with qualitative data derived from an open-ended survey distributed to two separate samples in order to compare male and female experiences.
