Recently the literature has paid more attention to the entrepreneurial environment, to explain the role of entrepreneurship in the economic development. However nowadays very little empirical contributions demonstrate that the entrepreneurial environment really counts (Acs et al., 2014; Szerb et al., 2015; Acs et al., 2017) in promoting quality entrepreneurship. By using the GWR, we explored the spatial heterogeneity of the role of entrepreneurial context to explain differences in levels of regional development. In our study, the entrepreneurial environment is measured by the Regional Entrepreneurship and Development Index (REDI) for the EU regions. The results show that the entrepreneurial environment on the level of regional development suggests some positive or negative impact, depending on the location of the regions.
