Abstract: Although literature suggests that religion can influence entrepreneurial values very few studies have actually investigated the effect of religious values which informs entrepreneurial value among women entrepreneurs in developing country like Ghana where religion is a critical part of its life. The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between religious and entrepreneurial values. Drawing on socialisation and institutional theory and using a qualitative research approach, 30 women entrepreneurs were purposively selected from three main religious in Ghana. Findings showed that religious values are stronger determinants of entrepreneurial values. These determinants can either benefit or challenged women entrepreneurship. This paper contributes to understanding women entrepreneurial values as socially situated and influenced by religious values.
