Entrepreneurship ecosystems emphasize the interaction of people, roles, infrastructure, organizations and events. They serve as a catalyst in potentially speeding up the economic progress of stable economies, but also can act as the prime mover when it comes to rescuing economies that have faced a sharp decline. This chapter explores the roles universities play within entrepreneurial ecosystems.

Family business background is assumed to contextually impact perceived behavioral control (PBC) and self-efficacy (SE), which in turn are assumed to drive entrepreneurial intentions. The relationship is here assumed to be gendered. Following Ajzen (2002), the authors treat PBC and SE as distinct concepts. PBC is a predictor of actual behavior, whereas SE predicts an intention.
