Abstract
This study aims at reporting the construction processes and psychometric properties of the Buginese Culture Value System Scale for Entrepreneur (BVSS-E). A number of previous studies found the significant effect of culture and local values in shaping entrepreneurial behavior and entrepreneurship success in Asia, America and Europe. This study initiated a new approach to the entrepreneurship studies by constructing the BVSS-E. This scale was constructed based on seven Buginese's core values. The initial 44-item BVSS-E scale was administered to 300 participants (230 returned the scale). The reliability test yielded .75 Cronbach's alpha. The factor analysis also confirmed the seven-factor model with a good fit. Future studies should provide more evidence regarding the validity and reliability of the scale in different population.
