Abstract: Eighty-one percent of working-age Jamaicans agreed with the statement that most people in the country consider that starting a business is a desirable career choice. Indeed, much status is accorded to successful Jamaican entrepreneurs. However, in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) Report (2010), individual success achieved through personal efforts was lauded by the national culture on the one hand, but on the other, entrepreneurial risk-taking, creativity and innovativeness are not well-supported.
