Impact of Cultural Differences on Entrepreneurial Practices
Business incubators are a relatively new organizational form in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Incubators provide technical, business and logistics support to new start-ups in their initial stages. In addition to such resources, incubators also facilitate the development of entrepreneurs at the personal level. Cultural differences, specifically the individualism – collectivism dimension of culture, play a significant role in how the intermediary role of incubators affects the development of networks and political skills.
