This study examines the infiuence that nationai culture has on the relationship between entrepreneuriai orientation and strategic alliance formation. Using a sample of small- to medium-sized enterprises iocated in Finland, Greece, Indonesia, Mexico, the Netheriands, and Sweden, we find that firms with higher levels of entrepreneurial orientation will use strategic alliances more extensiveiy (I.e., use a greater number of agreements)  than those firms with a weaker entrepreneurial orientation. Moreover, this relationship is strengthened in those countries that demonstrate either feminine or collective characteristics.
