artifact description
This paper uncovers regional and national determinants of growth-oriented entrepreneurship, controlling for individual level characteristics. Thus far studies of growth-oriented entrepreneurship have taken into account determinants on the individual level, as starting up a firm is a choice made by individuals, but have largely ignored determinants on the national and the regional level. In this paper, the individual, regional, and national level determinants of individual level growth-oriented entrepreneurship are simultaneously analyzed.
