Abstract: Today, developing entrepreneurial environment within the organisation has become the basic need of many organisations. Since organisational culture affects all organisational processes, organisations are creating their own culture so as to facilitate entrepreneurial behaviours. This study aims to determine the effect of organisational culture items on entrepreneurial behaviour of knowledge workers of Iranian knowledge-based companies, through servant leadership mediator. The statistical population includes all knowledge workers of Iranian knowledge-based companies in Isfahan City. Based on Krejcie-Morgan table, size of the sample (n = 165) is determined. The research is conducted in descriptive-analytical manner and data collection is done through questionnaire. Then, collected data is analysed through PLS Software. The results suggest that certain aspects of organisational culture (involvement culture, adaptability culture, consistency culture, and mission culture) affect worker's entrepreneurial behaviour significantly. In addition, servant leadership mediates in the association between organisational culture and entrepreneurial behaviour of knowledge workers significantly.
