Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Entrepreneurship has traditionally attracted governments’ attention because of its potential correlation with economic growth. Despite the large amount of research done regarding entrepreneurship, little is known about the relationship between a country’s institutions and its level of entrepreneurship. The purpose of this study is to find out if there are institutional explanations to why some countries seem to promote entrepreneurship better than others. This report examines to what extent institutions derived from Varieties of Capitalism affect the degree of entrepreneurship in a country. The institutions are education, labour regulation, and financing structure. This will be done through a set of regression analysis based on data from a large number of countries. The results of the analysis show that there is a positive correlation between vocational education and the level of entrepreneurship. In contrast to the theory Varieties of Capitalism this study could not find support that labour regulation and financing structure had a direct effect on entrepreneurship. The results indicate that the relationship between institutions and entrepreneurship is complex and that there is need for further examination.
