Abstract: In today’s knowledge-based economy, it is particularly important to take measures to increase innovation and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurial society becomes the foundation for building the competitiveness of the Polish economy. In this context, it is important to shape an entrepreneurial society that is characterized by active participation in the development of entrepreneurial initiatives. Being entrepreneurial means willingness to adopt the attitude expressed through a creative approach to economic reality. In the process of preparation of human resources for entrepreneurial activity, the key role is attributed to education, which boils down to raising the awareness that starting and running a business is a path of career development. The article is divided into two parts. The first, theoretical, part contains reflections on selected factors affecting the development of entrepreneurial intention, which is the beginning of the process of individual entrepreneurship. In the second part, the author briefly presents the results of pilot studies carried out to analyze the intentions of enterprising students of the Technical University of Czestochowa, in relation to issues such as: the perception of entrepreneurship and conditions for the initiation and conduct of business, and assessment of entrepreneurial potential.
