An explanatory model of women’s entrepreneur intention within a government funded entrepreneurship program

Margarita Araya Jofré

Abstract


This study consists in an explanatory model of the entrepreneur intention (EI) of a group of women participating in the Learning to Undertake Project (LTU) financed by PRODEMU (Women’s Promotion and Development Fund) in 2014. The Theory of Planned Behavior (TBP) variables, as well as socio personal variables were studied to determine the impact upon the subject’s entrepreneur conduct. Since the study found that there is a positive correlation between EI and age; and a negative correlation between barriers to entrepreneurship, public policies to enhance socially vulnerable women entrepreneurship should consider these specific variables.
