Abstract

Differences in entrepreneurial activity among countries and regions can be explained not only by economic variables (Davidsson and Wiklund 1997) but also by socio-cultural characteristics (Davisson 1995; Thornton et al. 2012), manifested in various forms at national, regional, and organizational levels (George and Zahra 2002; Gnyawali and Fogel 1994). According to Busenitz et al.(2014), fruitful avenues for future entrepreneurship research occur at the interface between opportunities and a new organizational mode.
