This paper explores spatial contexts for innovative entrepreneurship at both the regional and individual level in the context of high-income European countries. Using GEM data, we find significant differences in the conditions influencing entrepreneurial innovativeness by regions. Such variations in entrepreneurial activity are mainly explained by the type of business and individual characteristics. This study illustrates how a contextualized view of entrepreneurship contributes to our understanding of the phenomenon. As a result, our work enriches our knowledge of the human and dynamic socioeconomical drivers motivating innovative entrepreneurial action.
