The objective of this research is to analyse from a resource-based theory the companies' resources and capabilities that condition intrapreneurship. The study uses a logistic regression analysis and a specific database on intrapreneurship from the 2008 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), which includes 24,304 observations from 10 countries. The main results show that both resources and capabilities affect the intrapreneurial activities. That is, specific training in entrepreneurship, previous entrepreneurial experience, firm size, entrepreneurial competences, as well as the ability to detect business opportunities influence intrapreneurship. However, personal contact with other entrepreneurs does not seem to have a significant effect. The study contributes both theoretically, advancing in the application of the resource-based theory for the study of intrapreneurship, and practically, the research could be useful for the design of policies to promote corporate entrepreneurship. © 2013 2013 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
