Abstract:
The study is aimed to examine the influence of different determinants on entrepreneurship in some developing Asian countries. In this dissertation, entrepreneurship determinants are represented by a set of independent variables including Economic development, Population Growth Unemployment, Macroeconomic volatility, Education level, Financial development Technological development, Tax level, Corruption, Political stability and Cost of doing business. In addition, entrepreneurship, which is dependent variable of this research, is measured New Density entry firm. The sample of this research is collected from 9 Asian developing countries (Afghanistan, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Tajikistan and Thailand). Collected data are analyzed by implementing OLS regression model. The research results show that the stage of economic development, population growth rate, unemployment rate, financial development, level of political stability are the most influent determinants of entrepreneurship. In the meanwhile, level of education, inflation rate and level of the tax system are found to have negative impact on the level of entrepreneurial activities.
