Abstract:

Entrepreneurial training is widely used in the emerging economies by public and private organizations as a tool for poverty alleviation. The most popular learning tools are the business plan and the business canvas. This study seeks two interrelated objectives: 1) Conceptualize an unexplored dimension of entrepreneurial training: their ability to improve the “emotional equipment” of aspiring entrepreneurs, with an emphasis on hope. 2) Compare the effects of the business plan and the business canvas training on participants’ hope levels and perceived goals-attainment, A two-year quantitative longitudinal study was developed to establish the short and long-run effects of receiving entrepreneurial training, and between the two types of training, over participants’ levels of hope and perceived goal attainment. The study was developed in the context of an NGO training program developed in three Central American countries that targeted subsistence entrepreneurs. Results show that entrepreneurial programs significantly enhances participants hope levels both in the short and long term, and business goal attainment perceptions. In addition, both business plan and business canvas learning tools have different effects generating hope among subsistence entrepreneurs’ perceive goal attainments. The article concludes with a discussion of these results implications for entrepreneurial learning theory and teaching practice.
