We compare the results from a survey of 900 entrepreneurs in China and Russia. Compared to a sample of 1,000 non-entrepreneurs, Chinese and Russian entrepreneurs have more family members and childhood friends who started their own businesses. They also have higher wealth ambitions and value work more relative to leisure. Russian entrepreneurs have more education while Chinese entrepreneurs are greedier and more risk-taking.
