Abstract

In this study I aimed to describe and explain which factors affect entrepreneurship orientation. I expectthat proactivity and entrepreneurial behavior is directly related, and country’s institutional factors playvery important role on the entrepreneurship orientation. Therefore, I defined institutional profiles andentrepreneurship-s characteristics. Institutional profiles are classified into three main dimensions whichare based on Kostava’s 1997 research; cognitive, regulatory and, normative dimensions. On the otherhand, following Kostova, I modified questionnaire to adopt Turkish culture and I articulated andmeasured these dimensions. To define operationally the perceived institutional profiles forentrepreneurship, I generated a large pool of items, as well. The institutional profile dimensions includethirty-four items; eleven for regulatory dimension, eight for cognitive dimension and fifteen items fornormative dimension. On the other hand, my focus in this study is on the measurement and correlationof proactive behavior as a personal disposition relative to the stable behavioral tendency. Proactiveperson searches for opportunities, takes initiative, acts, but the proactive dimension of behavior isessentially rooted in people-s needs to manipulate and control the environment. At the same time, theprospective entrepreneur-s interpretation of the environment is also moderated by his-her beliefs aboutthe environment. From this point of view, I selected my research sample among graduate students whoare included 170 person, accepting them as potential investors. For the proactive personalitymeasurement, which includes seventeen items, Bateman and Crant-s 1993 questionnaire was used.Furthermore, data reliability was tested before the analysis has begun. To conclude, the findings of theresearch were discussed.
