Despite many studies on culture and entrepreneurship, still little are known about the role culture can play in the relationship between entrepreneurial intention and actual behaviour. This study adopts cultural entrepreneurial approach to tackle this problem by employing behavioural theories. Global entrepreneurship monitor (GEM) as well as global leadership and organisational behaviour effectiveness (GLOBE) project data were employed to test the moderating effects of cultural values on the relationship between entrepreneurial intention (EI) and entrepreneurial activities at a country level. The analysis covers the period of 2007 to 2017. OLS regression analyses in R package indicate that behavioural theories still hold, i.e., intentions lead to actions in the field of entrepreneurship.

Abstract

Despite many studies on culture and entrepreneurship, still little are known about the role culture can play in the relationship between entrepreneurial intention and actual behaviour. This study adopts cultural entrepreneurial approach to tackle this problem by employing behavioural theories. Global entrepreneurship monitor (GEM) as well as global leadership and organisational behaviour effectiveness (GLOBE) project data were employed to test the moderating effects of cultural values on the relationship between entrepreneurial intention (EI) and entrepreneurial activities at a country level. The analysis covers the period of 2007 to 2017. OLS regression analyses in R package indicate that behavioural theories still hold, i.e., intentions lead to actions in the field of entrepreneurship. It was also found that future orientation, performance orientation, and gender egalitarianism facilitate the relationship between entrepreneurial intentions and activities. The novel findings as well as the academic and practical implications of the study are discussed in the concluding section.
