Romanian Culture and its Attitude Towards Entrepreneurship
The “overview” culture of the nation we live in has an overwhelming influence. A strong entrepreneurial culture is the foundation of a dynamic economy. It reflects the measure in which a certain country’s society supports the entrepreneurs’ ideas and initiatives and the way in which it can direct its young people towards a career in business by developing the necessary skills in them. Its geography and history, its Latin origin and its orthodoxy determine the diversity of the Romanian culture’s characteristics. Being positioned at the intersection of multiple national cultural influences, the Romanian culture is in itself difficult to describe. At the same time, local culture is encyclopedic, not specialized, which is very useful for the transition period, in which a business promoter has to solve a great deal of problems in the most diverse domains. Living in a culture which favours the improvisation, the Romanian entrepreneur paradoxically found it an opportunity, especially since he had started with all odds against him when compared with his Western European competitor, armed with know-how, funding or the back-up of his country of origin.
