Abstract: In this research, I examine entrepreneurial culture (EC), a new construct developed by Skorka (2006) which considers a firm’s entrepreneurial climate from the employee’s perspective. I also extend current research by examining EC from a cross-cultural perspective. A convenience sample of 265 employees from SMEs in Confucian Asia and Southern Asia were asked to rate dimensions of EC in their departments. I used a survey instrument developed by Skorka (2006) to measure the effect of the five dimensions of EC on firm performance. The results suggest the following: First, several dimensions of EC relates positively to firm performance. Second, the relationship between EC and firm performance does not differ significantly across cultures. The only cross-cultural difference was found between constructive collaboration and the share of new products in total turnover. Lastly, the level of EC does not vary significantly according to culture.
