Entrepreneurship and Culture

Roy Thurik, Marcus Dejardin

Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


The relative stability of differences in entrepreneurial activity across countries suggests that factors other than economic ones are at play (Freytag and Thurik, 2010). Cultural factors, as a subset of stable contextual factors, may play a role. In this paper, we give examples of various theories on the relationship between cultural values and entrepreneurship, providing both a conceptual basis and an empirical test.
