Understanding the impact of national culture alone and in interaction with other contextual factors, is important for refining our knowledge of how entrepreneurs think and act. This paper presents a review of the literature on the link between cultural values and entrepreneurial beliefs, motives and behaviours. It suggests that there may not be a single entrepreneurial culture and suggests areas for future research.
