Abstract: For years, family business researchers have argued that many areas of entrepreneurship research have unnaturally separated the social institutions of family and business, calling for more exploration of the pervasive effects of family on entrepreneurship. Recent research has started to explore these effects within a family business context, but scholars still do not know much about how other family environments influence entrepreneurship. Using a family systems theoretical perspective, this conceptual paper addresses how developmental aspects of parenting and family environments, both inside and outside a family business context, contribute to the expression of entrepreneurial intentions and behaviours in adulthood. The most theoretically novel aspects of this paper focus on how family business contexts amplify links between entrepreneurial intentions and behaviours.
