Abstract:This research paper was conducted in order to identify possible implications the utilization of the causation and effectuation approach have in respect to a newly established company’s success. Therefore, this paper heavily relies on Sarasvathy’s work of the identification and clarification of the effectuation and causation approach. On the basis of a survey, which was send to approximately 2000 novice entrepreneurs in Germany, the results indicate that the effectuation approach is not a superior method in establishing a successful new business compared to the causational approach. The causational approach, however, also shows no signs for establishing a more successful venture than the effectual approach. Furthermore, this research displays the fact that both approaches potentially have a big influence in the performance of a company, but are not the only determinants for a successful business.
