Abstract: Garut is not only well-known as the city of dodol, but also as the city of the barbers. Most barbermen in Indonesia come from Garut, precisely from a village named Kampung Parung, Banyuresmi Subdistrict. Usually, upon completion of high schools, they go to big cities to open barbershops instead of going to universities. This has been a well-established entrepreneurial culture in that village for decades. The purpose of this study is to identify how this long entrepreneurial culture is established. To this end, a survey was addressed to 120 barbermen. The results show that family plays an important role in establishment of entrepreneurial culture in the village in question. Education is not much of importance to them.
Keywords: Entrepreneurial Culture, Entrepreneurship, Village of the Barbers.
