Material type: ArticleArticlePublisher: 2014Description: 221-244Subject(s): Gem | Global Entrepreneurship Monitor | Creative Class | Opportunity Perception | Nascent Entrepreneurship | Regional Entrepreneurship In: Small Business EconomicsSummary: This article seeks to better understand the link between regional characteristics and individual entrepreneurship. We combine individual-level Global Entrepreneurship Monitor data for Western Germany with regional-level data, using multilevel analysis to test our hypotheses. We find no direct link between regional knowledge creation, the economic context and an entrepreneurial culture on the one side and individual business start-up intentions and start-up activity on the other side. However, our findings point to the importance of an indirect effect of regional characteristics as knowledge creation, the economic context and an entrepreneurial culture have an effect on the individual perception of founding opportunities, which in turn predicted start-up intentions and activity.
