Abstract:The primary purpose of this study is to find out if there is a difference in entrepreneurial leadership between Germany and the Netherlands and whether this is explainable with the masculinity index. The masculinity index describes the degree to which masculine values are valued over feminine values. Seventy-four companies served as subjects in a study designed to investigate the entrepreneurial difference between Germany and the Netherlands done with five different aspects. On the basis of the results of this research, it can be concluded that the masculinity index is also reflected within the German and Dutch entrepreneurial leaders. This study also reveals that an individual entrepreneurial leader in Germany is less agreeable but more neurotic and open to experience than an entrepreneurial leader in the Netherlands.
