Abstract: In this study, drawing on effectuation theory, we combine analytical strategies for process data to inductively examine and theorize how founder teams' perceptions of uncertainty and types of behavioral logic develop during the new venture creation processes. The results bring forth the notion of unanticipated consequences of actions, and refine the connections between uncertainty, effectuation, and causation. By combining decision-making and effectuation theory, we discuss the central role of unanticipated consequences in perceived uncertainty and types of behavioral logic, and offer revelatory insights on the topic of uncertainty and entrepreneurial action.
