An often advanced case for modern small-scale enterprises runs in terms of their contribution to the development of entrepreneurship. Given that the Irish plastics industry is basically a small-scale activity (Ahmed, 1976) and that entrepreneurial development forms the cornerstone of the IDA policy for small-industry promotion, this paper evaluates the contribution of the Irish plastics industry to the development of industrial entrepreneurship i n Ireland. The paper introduces a set of hypotheses that influence the supply of industrial entrepreneurship in the developing countries, and these are empirically tested in the light o f the available data.
