Abstract

Studies on the influence of entrepreneurial role models peers on the decision to start a firm ar-gue that entrepreneurial role models in the local environment 1 provide opportunities to learn about entrepreneurial tasks and capabilities, and 2 signal that entrepreneurship is a favorable career option thereby reducing uncertainty that potential entrepreneurs face. However, these studies remain silent about the role of institutional context for these mechanisms. Applying an ex-tended sender-receiver model, we hypothesize that observing entrepreneurs reduces fear of fail-ure in others in environments where approval of entrepreneurship is high while this effect is signif-icantly weaker in low approval environments. Taking advantage of the natural experiment from recent German history and using data from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Project GEM, we find considerable support for our hypotheses.
