It has been widely recognized that business failure will greatly affects entrepreneur's livelihood. The negative impacts of business failure can be a great barrier for entrepreneurs to start all over again. However, starting another business after subsequent failure is very important for entrepreneurs.

Data from 226 novice entrepreneurs who had been failing in past were analysed using path analysis. The result shows that experience and age are the variable which have a direct impact on re-entry duration, while education have indirect relationship.
