Abstract in another language

This study investigates cultural antecedents of motivators and intentions of new venture-generation. By using a sophisticated data analysis method – multi-group structural equation modelling – we compare German and Polish MBA students in order to study cultural influences on entrepreneurship. In general, we find some similar, but also contrasting, results through the analyses of three cultural dimensions: power distance; collectivism; individualism. Also, results show that in both countries the motivation to start a new venture leads to the intent to start a new venture. This study not only considers different cultural antecedents, but also indirectly analyses the dissimilarities between a developed and a transitional economy.
