Based on the theories of social cognition, information processing and expertise, a cross-cultural model of venturing scripts and the venture creation decision is provided in this paper. An exploration of hypothesized relationships using Analysis of Variance and data from 677 respondents in seven countries on the Pacific Rim find support for this model. Arrangements, willingness, and ability scripts are found to be associated with the venture creation decision. Cultural values of individualism and power-distance are found to be associated with willingness and ability cognitive scripts and to also to be associated with the venture creation decision through interaction with arrangements scripts.
