Abstract: Entrepreneurship is an important part of economic landscape and digital changed the way creation can be done. This exploratory study wishes to fill the gap in the literature about entrepreneurship and digital and presents a conceptual model of digital entrepreneurship intention. Based on 10 semi-structured interviews of both French and Emirati digital entrepreneurs, results show that agility, entrepreneurial alertness and entrepreneurial characteristics influence intention. Managerial and academic contributions are proposed. Professionals can identify items that will help them launching their firm when academics will find new areas of research regarding digital entrepreneurship.
