During the 1940s and 1950s, business historians pioneered the study of entrepreneurship. The interdisciplinary Center for Research on Entrepreneurial History, based at Harvard Business School which included Joseph Schumpeter and Alfred Chandler, and its journal Explorations in Entrepreneurial History were key institutional drivers of the research agenda. However the study of entrepreneurship ran into formidable methodological roadblocks, and attention shifted to the corporation, leaving the study of entrepreneurship fragmented and marginal. Nevertheless, business historians have made significant contributions to the study of entrepreneurship through their diverse coverage of countries, regions, and industries, and – in contrast to much management research over the past two decades – through exploring how the economic, social, organizational, and institutional context matters to evaluating entrepreneurship
According to Nikhil Scares (2004), the business environment means all of the internal and external factors that affect how a company functions including employees, customers, and management, supply, demand, and business regulations. The term business environment connotes external forces, factors, and institutions that are beyond the control of the business and how they affect the functioning of the business enterprise. The business environment affects things like the decisions, strategies, processes, and performance of the business or organization. The environment consists of those factors which are beyond the control of the organization itself. These factors include the legal, political, social, economic, technological factors. And these factors provide both threats and opportunities to the business.
Since businesses make demands on society and the society also expects demand from the business, managers in any organization must interact with and respond to environmental factors internal or external to their organization. The relationship between the business and the society and also within the business is what we call the business environment.
The relation between business and the business environment has been given attention in the last few decades. The Cameroonian business environment has been evaluated and addressed by several scholars and several suggestions have been recommended the have been an invincible change accordingly. Jaw Maritz (2013), Cameroon is unique because it has both French and English as official languages. Given as the country Cameroon is bilingual, both the French-speaking and English-speaking business people will find a possible way to operate in the country. The economic activities of the country are distributed across a number of cities which is different from other countries in Africa where most commercial or economic activities are centralized in their capital cities.
So far, over the past years, Cameroon has been characterized by positive economic growth and also supported by large public infrastructure. However, national poverty has remained the same. Why is this so and how does it affect organizational performance
Some questions which were formed or which will be used in the research or to assist in getting some information include:
- To what extent will political instability affect the business environment of an organization?
- What are the factors to be considered or the factors to study when looking at the effects of the business environment on business performances?
- How is the business environment related to a business or business?
- To what extent will political instability affect the business environment?

Especially in my country Cameroon. These are other sub-objectives in the research
