Abstract

This paper examines the interest and possible reasons for launching entrepreneurship in the field of agro-tourism in order to reduce unemployment. The survey was conducted using the survey method, which gathered the relevant indicators needed to draw conclusions. The Harper test (Harper SC., 1991) was used, with modified questions, tailored to the needs of entrepreneurship in tourism. The aim of the research is to determine the level of interest and the entrepreneurial potential of potential agrotourism business starters. The results show that people with secondary education are most interested in this kind of enterprise. The main advantage of potential agro-tourism entrepreneurs is experience in the same or similar business, while the main disadvantage is the lack of business connections. Further conclusions indicate that our average potential agro-tourism entrepreneur wants to invest in a business that he knows, he is ready to invest primarily because of lack of work and profit.
