Chapter 10: How to study context in quantitative entrepreneurship research
The context of entrepreneurial processes has gained increasing attention in entrepreneurship research. In the past, qualitative methods have dominated the field of contextual entrepreneurship research. It seems that quantitative researchers are still unsure about how to empirically model the complexity of the field. Most quantitative studies have used rather simple regression modelling techniques that have been criticized by contextual researchers for having too many shortcomings and for oversimplifying contextual complexity. Chapter 10 provides some suggestions on the empirical-quantitative framing of entrepreneurship in context. It offers methods for confirming assumed contextual relationships, but also for discovering new contextual interactions.
