Small Business Research Centre Seminar: entrepreneur resources, cultural context, and social value creation

Dirk De Clercq is professor of Management in the Goodman School of Business at Brock University, Canada. He is also Research Professor in the Small Business Research Centre at Kingston University. He is a recipient of the Brock University Chancellor's Chair for Research Excellence, Faculty of Graduate Studies Graduate Mentorship Award, Goodman School of Business Distinguished Researcher Award, and Departmental Researcher of the Year Award. He teaches Entrepreneurship and Research Methods, and is Consulting Editor of International Small Business Journal. His research focuses on entrepreneurship, innovation, organizational behaviour and cross-country studies.

This study seeks to provide a better understanding of how the interplay of individual-level resources and culture affects entrepreneurs' propensity to adopt social value creation goals. Using a sample of entrepreneurs in multiple countries, the results offer empirical evidence that individual-level resources are relevant for predicting the extent to which entrepreneurs emphasize social goals for their business. Furthermore, culture influences the way entrepreneurs allocate their resources toward social value creation.
