Abstract / Summary

Institutional theory has been a popular theoretical foundation for exploring a wide variety of topics in different domains, ranging from institutional economics and political science to organisation theory (Powell and DiMaggio, 1991). It is widely accepted that for entrepreneurship to emerge within a culture, first entrepreneurs must be granted social acceptance so that their activities are accepted as legitimate and socially beneficial. Second, entrepreneurs must also be able to gain access to the financial, material and educational resources necessary to initiate new ventures. Condition one requires that the entrepreneurial role be validated by a set of cultural values that recognise the legitimacy of the entrepreneurship; condition two requires social institutions and procedures that provide potential entrepreneurs access to necessary resources (Abzari & Safari, 2014).
