Abstract

The investigation of entrepreneurship behaviour is motivated by the desire to boost economic performance (Audretsch and Keilbatch, 2004; Van Praag and Versloot, 2007). Whereas in classical economic theory only labour and capital were considered as key factors of production, awareness of the importance of entrepreneurial capital with respect to economic performance dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century (Schumpeter 2008) (Baumol, 1968; Foster, 1984; Lewis, 1955). Given its particular prominence in the last two decades, entrepreneurship capital has been attributed the ‘factor of production’ status, yielding as a result a growing body of literature and being distinguished as one of the most important aspects of modern economic theory (Matlay, 2005).
