    This study inquires the social impact of entrepreneurial behaviour from a regional development perspective. A special focus is laid on the reciprocity of public and private leaders' regional responsibility. From a social capital perspective, the relevance of shared values among actors within regional structures is elaborated and identified as a decisive component for establishing regional economic prosperity in dynamic structural conditions. Qualitative data is analysed by mapping semantic relations within network structures. Results emphasise the role of shared values among entrepreneurs and public managers as a critical precondition for the application of entrepreneurial patterns to approaching social challenges.
