This paper investigates the effects of birth order on entrepreneurial intention (EI) and risk taking propensity of managers. Data from 230 managers from different industries in Kosovo were collected through self-report questionnaires. The results show that laterborns demonstrate a higher EI and risk taking propensity compared to their firstborn counterparts. Our findings have important implications for practitioners and researchers since we investigate the EI and risk taking propensity of managers in a non-Western culture. Moreover, given that individual characteristics cannot be changed, the knowledge of the impact of birth order on managers’ attitudes towards intrapreneurship and risk taking is indispensable for organizations. Information about managers’ EI and risk taking related to their birth order can be useful for fostering an entrepreneurial climate for managers of certain birth orders to act intrapreneurially rather than spin out.
