Abstract [en]

Entrepreneurship policy assumes that venture creation is important due to its contribution to the economy. Such a policy shapes the institutional environment in which entrepreneurs take their decisions and start their ventures. However, the question of if and how entrepreneurship policy influences entrepreneurial activity positively is far from being answered. Also, the influence of context on entrepreneurship policymaking is far from being addressed. This chapter therefore conducts a content analysis of entrepreneurship policies for the health sector in Rwanda. It specifically looks at the discourses linked to an entrepreneur- and business-enabling environment and analyzes how they contribute in promoting entrepreneurship in the health sector in Rwanda from a contextual perspective. Our study contributes theoretically to research on contextualizing entrepreneurship and research on entrepreneurship policy in two ways: First, by actually undertaking an empirical study on entrepreneurship policy in a developing country rather than applying Western policymaking to developing countries; second, by focusing on a case where the entrepreneurship policy explicitly aims at the betterment of society.
