  • REXAMINING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ECONOMIC FREEDOM, INCOME AND
           ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN SOUTH AFRICA: A VECM APPROACH

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: DARMA MAHADEA, MARTIN KABANGE
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      Entrepreneurship is an integral part of change and development, contributing positively to employment, poverty reduction and income growth. It flourishes in an institutional context of freedom rather than suppression. This paper examines the relationship between economic freedom, income and entrepreneurship in South Africa, using (1994–2019) time-series data. Economic freedom was measured by the Economic Freedom Index (FREE) as a proxy. Income and early-stage entrepreneurship were proxied by gross domestic product per capita (GDPC) and total entrepreneurial activity (TEA), respectively. Johansen cointegration tests and a vector error correction model (VECM) were used to estimate the short- and long-run associations between the variables. The results indicate a bi-directional short- and long-run cointegrating relationship between freedom and entrepreneurship; freedom is also found to be a significant predictor of GDPC in South Africa. Thus, improvements in real per capita GDP and economic freedom tend to enhance early-stage entrepreneurship, providing greater scope for business formations. Hence, a mindset change from radical economic transformation to pro-economic freedom might help in stimulating entrepreneurship.

      Authors: SAMSIDINE AIDARA, ABDULLAH AL MAMUN, NOORUL AZWIN MD NASIR, MUHAMMAD MOHIUDDIN
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      This study empirically investigates the relationship between entrepreneurial competencies and sustainability performance. It also explores the direct effects of financial capital, human capital, social capital, government support and business environment on sustainability performance of micro-enterprises operating in the informal sector. The study is conducted within the context of Senegal and through the lens of resource-based view theory. Employing a cross-sectional design, data is collected from randomly selected micro and small entrepreneurs operating in the informal sector. The outcomes include a positive effect of opportunity recognition competency, commitment competency and government support on the sustainability performance of micro-enterprises. An Importance Performance Matrix analysis indicates that these factors are the most important factors determining sustainability performance of micro-enterprises within the context of the informal sector. The findings extend the scope of RBV while simultaneously enhancing the knowledge and understanding pertaining to the interplay of entrepreneurial competencies and sustainability performance, particularly for small business operators in the informal sector. Implications are drawn to theory development, practice and public policy.

  • FINANCIAL SELF-EFFICACY OF ENTREPRENEURS AND PERFORMANCE

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: DRASKO VESELINOVIC, JASNA AUER ANTONCIC, BOSTJAN ANTONCIC, DALMA LORENA GRBEC
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      In most developing countries, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are an essential segment of the economic composition and crucial players for fostering innovation, growth and prosperity. Despite wide agreement among researchers in entrepreneurship and SME management that entrepreneurial and general self-efficacy can positively impact business formation and growth, one aspect of entrepreneurial self-efficacy, i.e., financial self-efficacy, has not been linked to SME performance in terms of SME profitability and growth, or satisfaction of the entrepreneur with their company. This study fills this research gap by uncovering new knowledge about the relationship between the financial self-efficacy of the entrepreneur and elements of SME performance. Data were collected through a structured questionnaire in one European country. Hypotheses were conceptually developed and checked using regression analysis. The results of this research reveal new knowledge about the relationship between financial self-efficacy and performance. The entrepreneur’s financial self-efficacy can matter for the profitability of SMEs, as well as for the growth and satisfaction of micro-SMEs and certain differently defined groups of entrepreneurs or companies.

           IN SOUTHERN AFRICA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: CHUKUAKADIBIA ERESIA-EKE, CHIJIOKE OKERUE
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      This study explores the relationships that human, economic and social capital may have with the creation of employment in small businesses that belong to African immigrants. Based on a cross-country approach, the study utilized self-administered questionnaires to collect data in a cross-sectional manner from 829 respondents in some states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Results obtained from the analysis of the data revealed that certain variables in the triumvirate of human, economic and social capitals displayed statistically significant relationships with employment creation. Specifically, among the studied variables, only management skills, educational achievement, business support services and language proficiency correlated positively with employment creation. Consequently, Governments, African-immigrant entrepreneurs and other interested stakeholders may need to invest in the improvement of these specific components of human, economic and social capital bases of entrepreneurs for the touted benefit of employment creation to materialize.

  • FEMALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP, EMPLOYABILITY AND EMPOWERMENT: IMPACT OF THE
           MUDRA LOAN SCHEME

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: VARUNA AGARWALA, SUDARSHAN MAITY, TARAK NATH SAHU
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      Improved access to credit influences socio-economic growth. Accordingly, financial support schemes have been used widely as a development tool to help underserved individuals grow and elevate themselves out of poverty. Uplifting women, who are subject to unfair treatment because of gender biases, have been a major target of these programs. Therefore, the present study examines one such government microcredit scheme, the Mudra Yojana, which supports individuals financially to start an enterprise or expand the existing one by providing collateral-free loans. Further, it encourages female participants by charging lower interest rates. The present study, based on 417 female beneficiaries from the tribal districts of West Bengal, India, investigates how financial support has benefitted women in their socio-economic growth. It evaluates the scheme’s effect based on women’s employability and empowerment level. To analyze the data, the study employs ordered logistic regression, Wilcoxon Sign test, effect size, etc. The results suggest micro-credit through Mudra Yojana encourages female entrepreneurship, raises earnings and employability, and thereby empowers them financially, socially, psychologically and in the political arena. The findings of these studies reinforce the fact women could be “active agents of change” and play an important role in both the family and society.

           ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN UGANDA

      Authors: ARTHUR SSERWANGA, REBECCA KICONCO, ESTER AGASHA, BRENDA KYOMUHENDO
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      It often has been argued that entrepreneurs in developing countries can be classified as either “survival” or “growth-oriented.” However, there is little systematic knowledge about the classification of entrepreneurs and their predictors in developing countries. Recently, scholars have distinguished high potential entrepreneurs from low potential entrepreneurs, given that high potential entrepreneurs recognize and effectively exploit opportunities. In Uganda, high potential entrepreneurs have access to more resources than low potential entrepreneurs. However, the literature does not clarify whether access to resources influences entrepreneurship classifications, especially in a developing country context. We surveyed more than 700 entrepreneurs in Uganda to establish how resources influence entrepreneurship classification. In this paper, we attempt to investigate how psychology and other human and social resources influence forms of entrepreneurship.

      Authors: JUNMIN WANG, CAROLINE VIRGINIA REILLY, KANIZ FATEMA
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      The benefits of female leaders in economic organizations increasingly are being reported. A large body of empirical studies focuses on the differences between female and male leaders regarding their personality characteristics, social skills and leadership styles. The existing literature pays insufficient attention to the institutional, cultural and organizational contexts that predetermine the mechanisms of shaping the leadership-performance linkage. By analyzing a national sample of Chinese private companies, we offer evidence for female CEOs’ heightened innovativeness compared to male CEOs. We suggest that organizational bias in selecting leadership and discrimination practices compel female CEOs to develop and utilize innovative capacities. A firm’s institutional environment moderates the positive role of female CEOs on firm innovativeness. The positive effects of female CEOs in promoting firm innovativeness are more potent in regions with lower GDP levels and less government support, where discriminations against women are more pervasive and deep-seated.

           EVIDENCE FROM MEXICO

      Authors: MARTÍN RAMÍREZ-URQUIDY, ALEJANDRO MUNGARAY, ROBERTO FUENTES
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      This paper studies the evolution of some higher education and R&D variables in Mexico during 2007–2017 and determines their effects on different entrepreneurial outcomes. It is shown that these variables affect the entrepreneurial outcomes heterogeneously depending on the type of venture. They do not explain the overall entrepreneurship; however, they do explain higher education and knowledge-based entrepreneurship. The research also suggests that, despite the general improvement of the performance indicators in the higher education institutions and the R&D variables enabled by the public policy, its scope is still limited, distributed unequally across states and ambiguous in innovative outcomes. Some insights for policy applicable to developing countries are provided.

  • GENDER GAPS IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND EDUCATION FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF
           CLUSTERS OF EUROPEAN COUNTRIES

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: ALEKSANDRA GAWEŁ, MILOŠ KRSTIĆ
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      In European countries, the gender gap in entrepreneurship is persistently observed because females make up on average 30 percent of entrepreneurs. The aim of the paper is to investigate the impact of gender gaps in education at different levels (youth, higher education, adult learning and STEM education) on the gender gap in entrepreneurship, both in all analyzed European countries and in identified clusters of countries. The research is based on the cluster analysis and regression modelling of yearly panel data for 31 European countries for the period 2013–2018. Generally speaking, to the same extent, the gender gap in entrepreneurship can be explained by the gender gap in educational outcomes at different levels, mostly in early leavers and in STEM education. However, European countries are not monolithic in these aspects, as four clusters of countries are identified. Relationships between the gender gaps strongly depend on the country’s characteristics. In countries with a relatively lower level of female entrepreneurship and their education outcomes, the gender gap in entrepreneurship is affected the most significant in comparison to other clusters, by gender gaps in early leavers, higher education and STEM education. However, in clusters of countries with relatively moderate or high levels of female entrepreneurship and education outcomes, their relationships are rather limited.

      We examine how economic dynamism, along with the cultural orientation of individualism vs. collectivism shape the multilayered relationships between perceptual variables—self efficacy, attitude, social capital and perceived opportunities—and entrepreneurial intentions (EI). For the first time, we introduce economic dynamism as a national context variable for EI. We also join a group of entrepreneurship scholars to apply a multilayered approach to account for the multiple interactions among individual and contextual variables. We test our hypotheses using country-level aggregates of GEM data. For comparison purposes, we consider four nations differentiated along the dimensions of economic dynamism and the cultural trait of individualism vs. collectivism, namely, China, Italy, Japan and the United States. The results show that self-efficacy predicts EI across all four nations; the interactive effects between perceived opportunities and attitude and between social capital and attitude are contingent upon national contexts in terms of economic dynamism and individualism vs. collectivism. Although economic development long has been a popular contextual variable in the study of EI, there remains a lack of empirical support. One reason is economic development assumes a stable state, when in fact changes in an economy may be more critical in impacting entrepreneurial intentions. In the current study, we replace economic development with that of economic dynamism. Future research needs to refine the construct and develop a measure of it.

      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      By exploring the resilience skills of African-American, Hispanic and female entrepreneurs, this study examines entrepreneurs who face great obstacles, but still start more businesses than their White counterparts (Fairlie and Robb, 2009). The experiences of minorities and women lead to the development of risk and protective factors that result in differences in resilience. Here we present a model of resilience informed by the psychology and educational literatures which illustrates how particular experiences of minorities and women enable them to develop higher levels of resilience. In this model, the adaptive cultures of women and minorities equip them to overcome the adversity which arises from their social stratification as marginalized groups. We then test this model using a nationally representative, stratified random sample of 340 Black, Hispanic and White male and female entrepreneurs. The empirical results from two-way ANOVAs, Kruskal-Wallis H tests and multiple regression analysis indicate that Blacks and Hispanics had higher social resilience than White entrepreneurs, and that women had greater self and social resilience than male entrepreneurs.

  • THE CONVERSION FROM INFORMALITY TO A FORMAL ENTITY: LINKS TO THE NATURE OF
           THE OWNER-MANAGER

      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      Recognizing the heterogeneity of informal microentrepreneurs, this paper assesses the determinants of their willingness to enter the formal sector. Based on human capital theory and social capital theory, we test the hypothesis that firm decision-making regarding formalization is a function of the nature of the informal microentrepreneur. Using data collected from 500 informal microentrepreneurs in Morocco, and employing a logistic regression model, we find that higher education level, motivation by business opportunity, entrepreneurship training, work experience, gender and the importance of social networks have an impact on the desire to formalize. The paper concludes by discussing the theoretical and policy implications.

  • UNDERSTANDING THE PROCESSES OF NECESSITY MICRO-ENTREPRENEURS IN DEVELOPING
           CONTEXTS: THE TIJUANA CASE

      Authors: MARIA BALLESTEROS-SOLA, GERMAN OSORIO-NOVELA
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      We conducted an exploratory multi-case study of female, necessity micro-entrepreneurs in developing contexts to partially validate an existing theoretical model and identify relevant omitted variables. Using a sample of eight female, necessity entrepreneurs in Tijuana (Mexico), we were able to challenge the established pull-push binary framework in entrepreneurship as well as the linear entrepreneurial process. Our analysis suggests that motivations, family embeddedness and gender identity are critical factors impacting the female micro-venture creation process in developing contexts. We summarize our theoretical findings in a new process model that accounts for macro, meso and micro factors, offering contributions to the scholarship on female entrepreneurship in developing contexts.

  • THE ROLE OF EMPOWERED EMPLOYEE ETHICAL VOICE IN SUPPORTING SOCIAL
           ENTREPRENEURSHIP

      Authors: JAMES ANTHONY SWAIM, DEBORAH ROEBUCK
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Ahead of Print.
      The ethical landscape of social entrepreneurship firms is at a nascent stage of development. To explore and potentially elevate this issue, this paper presents a conceptual model and accompanying research propositions to enhance the ethical climate surrounding social entrepreneurship. The conceptual model includes three compound constructs—ethical empowering leadership, perceived ethical organizational support and empowered employee ethical voice—augmented with two established constructs, a code of ethics and ethics training. A literature review is provided as supporting information for the conceptual model and associated research propositions. Potential applications and research implications are also presented.
