This study asks how key regulations in both developed and developing countries influence nascent international entrepreneurship in countries with varying levels of corruption. Using regulatory capture theory and institutional theory, the authors uncover the interplay between tax, export regulations and corruption and find that corruption plays a dual role, serving as both grease and sand for nascent international entrepreneurship. Corruption worsens the burden of regulations which have financial costs element, while hindering international entrepreneurship in countries where administrative burden is high. When corruption is low, the corporate tax, unlike other tax regulation does not affect international entrepreneurship.
