In the study of entrepreneurship, the external entrepreneurial environment is a very important factor affecting entrepreneurial behavior and performance. Among them, institutional environment has attracted the attention of scholars because of its incentive and restrictive role in innovation strategy selection and performance. Complex institutional environment can induce different strategic decisions. Therefore, it is of great theoretical and practical significance to analyse the tendency of entrepreneurs’ strategic choice intention, that is, the individual entrepreneurial orientation, from the perspective of institutional environment. Based on this, this paper proposes two questions: first is what differentiated impact the different dimensions of the institutional environment will have on entrepreneurs’ individual entrepreneurial orientation. Second, what is the intermediary mechanism of the institutional environment affecting the entrepreneurs’ individual entrepreneurial orientation. Our study makes contributions to the entrepreneurship literature by enriching the entrepreneurial orientation research from the organizational level to the individual level, discussing the entrepreneurs’ individual entrepreneurial orientation based on the institutional environment, further revealing the interaction mechanism between entrepreneurs and institutional environment, which is different from the theoretical viewpoints that emphasize the intrinsic mechanism of entrepreneurs to promote entrepreneurship, and making up for the insufficiency of previous studies in the simplification of institutional environment dimension.
