The aim of the study was to examine individuals’ intentions to invest human capital, social capital and financial/non-financial resources during the financial crisis in Greece. The various forms of capital have been conceptualised in the context of the skills brokerage business model. We considered the effects of the financial crisis on work situation and income, in order to better explain entrepreneurial intentions. Results indicate that social capital factors and certain human capital factors (organisational tenure and skills) relate positively to skills investment intention. The implications of our findings for theory and practice are discussed and potential future avenues are proposed.
