This paper deals with entrepreneurs' objectives when starting a business. At the very beginning of the firm, the entrepreneur chooses to secure their jobs or to develop their firms. We provide evidence on the determinants of individuals' aim using a rich database made of an entrepreneur survey gathering entrepreneur and firm characteristics. We implement probit models on different subsamples to emphasize some covariatee ects. People who are the most discriminated on the labor market are more likely to create their own job than developing the firm.
