Our paper examines how the cultural background of the entrepreneurs affects the way they create their enterprise and to discover in what ways different business environments dissipate the cultural influence of the home country (or not). We hypothesized that (1) if culture is an influential factor, entrepreneurs from the same culture and with similar profile will use similar approaches that are characteristic of their culture regardless of the business environment they are in and (2) if culture is not an influential factor, these entrepreneurs will use different approaches contingent to the environment they are in. Nevertheless, culture and business environment may be both important. In that case, we want to find out which enterprise creation activities are under cultural influences and how.
