Abstract

The research conducted in this book examines the Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO) of the Indigenous or Bumiputera entrepreneurs (Malay Firms) in Malaysia by taking personality traits, cultural background and government aided programs as the antecedents. These constructs are used to explain the influence of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and its consequences towards firm performance. Based on the multiple linear regression (MLR) analysis, it can be concluded that in malay firms, the relationship between personality traits, cultural background and government aided programs with firm performance were not mediated by entrepreneurial orientation (EO). However, the entrepreneurial orientation (EO) construct is significant as predictor towards firm performance. The research provides a better understanding of the indigenous entrepreneurs for policy makers, NGOs, business support organization and the indigenous entrepreneurs themselves, particularly in relation to personally traits cultural background and government added program.
