Using causal and effectual decision-making logics ambidextrously leads to positive firm-level outcomes, such as enhanced new venture performance. However, what makes an entrepreneur more or less likely to apply this ambidextrous use? We address this unanswered question by introducing family financial support as a corresponding antecedent. Taking a family embeddedness perspective, we further theorize that our proposed relationships are weaker when the entrepreneur exhibits a strong internal locus of control. Analyzing a sample of 1,460 student entrepreneurs from 19 countries confirms our general reasoning and offers valuable contributions to different streams of literature.
