Abstract


This work investigates the relationship between the political and institutional environment and the development of entrepreneurship in Mozambique. Taking a literature review approach and using collected empirical data from interviewing 10 individuals playing different roles with impact on county’s entrepreneurial landscape, results support existing theory and suggest that this African country still has a long way to go in what relates governmental action to entrepreneurial development.
