Findings: The findings indicates that all the direct routes of perceived organizational support and creative organizational climate has a statistically significant relationship with the development of entrepreneurship. By eliminating non-significant routes, the model was modified. Fit indices of structural equation modeling showed the goodness of fit of the modified model. Furthermore, the results showing the indirect relationships, confirmed that these relationships are significant.
