Abstract: Abstract From a comparative economics perspective, entrepreneurship is a property of both individuals and, also, countries and their innovation systems. Based on this, the chapter explores the issue of entrepreneurial propensities of different types of capitalist economies. We discuss three analytical approaches which are relevant for exploring the relationship between Varieties of Capitalism and entrepreneurship. We than develop a conceptual approach to explore institutional varieties of capitalism from an entrepreneurial perspective. Our framework builds on the idea of ‘institutional varieties of entrepreneurial opportunities’ (EO) and its three components of technology, market and organizational regime. The key idea is that each opportunity component of entrepreneurial regime (ER) can be generated in different institutional constellations.
