Abstract: The aims underlying this study are to analyse to what extent the generic human capital and specific human capital of the nascent entrepreneur influences the creation of the innovative firm. The results obtained through logistic regression show the first evidence, with regard to the creation of innovative firms, that more than a higher level of education or professional experience it is education in certain areas ("technical-scientific" and "managerial education areas") and industry experience that positively influences the creation of the firm. The use of the qualitative approach of human capital complements and refines previous research on the influence of the nascent entrepreneur's human capital on the creation of the firm.
