Discover how cultural differences impact entrepreneurial activity
Culture shapes the way people think about and respond to risk and opportunities, thus influencing the nature of entrepreneurial activity.
The body of research exploring the relationship between national or regional cultures and the overall level of entrepreneurial activity continues to grow. Some researchers have focused on the culture/entrepreneurship link, while others have focused on the link between culture and innovation.
