Do necessity-driven entrepreneurs have no-growth aspirations?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The article has three main objectives: verify the necessity - opportunity dichotomy in the determinants of the growth aspiration, explore the effect of context on growth aspirations, and determine if necessity entrepreneur means no growth aspiration, or it could be more related to the context. We use the GEM database for six Latin-American countries over seven years, and build an econometric model based on a set of exogenous variables and contextual variables: GDP growth and Global Competitiveness Index (GCI). The primary finding of this work is the identification of the three groups for motivation of entrepreneurs, namely, necessity, opportunity and independence, demonstrating that motivation dichotomy is false. The second finding is that there are significant differences for the entrepreneurs based on the context. The third result is that necessity entrepreneurships did not necessarily mean no growth aspirations. The main recommendation is that policy makers concentrate in impact context variable that at the same time affects positively the growth aspiration of entrepreneurs.
