A Research Note On Institutional Logics And Entrepreneurial Action: The Case Of Black Church Organizations
AbstractWhat role do institutions play in the development of entrepreneurial ventures? What factors influence whether organizations will engage in entrepreneurial activity?

Using the "Black Church" as an institutional context, we predict entrepreneurial activity patterns of individual congregations based on denomination-specific institutional logics — rules and norms that either facilitate or constrain organizational action.
