Abstract

The notion of a sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem is a novel concept related to entrepreneurial ecosystems that focus on fostering sustainable entrepreneurship. This paper advances our understanding of the topic by investigating the success factors for developing strong sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems. Particularly important aspects in this context are the role of entrepreneurial stakeholders and regional culture for the perceptions of sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems. Using sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems in Graz, Austria, and Wuppertal, Germany, as an empirical base, a quantitative study is carried out. Based on a literature review, a set of hypotheses is developed and tested. The findings highlight the importance of regional entrepreneurial culture as well as tailored stakeholder support and collaboration in sustainable entrepreneurship for creating strong sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems.
