      Authors: NATHANIEL ADEYEMI ADEBAYO
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      Enlisting entrepreneurship policies to address the twin issues of poverty and income inequality in particular, and development in general, has become a standard practice in low-income and less developed countries. Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, is quintessential in this respect. This study investigates the extent to which entrepreneurship education has reduced both poverty and income inequality among entrepreneurs in South Western Nigeria. The study sample consists of tertiary institution graduates who undertook mandatory entrepreneurship coursework and then operated as micro, small and medium enterprise owners post-graduation. Data analysis reveals weak relationships between entrepreneurship education and both poverty reduction and income inequality, and a marginal effect of entrepreneurship education on the incidence of poverty, depth of poverty and severity of poverty. The study explores factors responsible for these results and makes recommendations on how to enhance the effect of entrepreneurship education.

  • CREDIT RISK, LIQUIDITY RISK AND FEEDBACK EFFECTS ON MICROFINANCE
           INSTITUTIONS: AN EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE IN ECUADOR

      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      Ten years of data from an Ecuadorian microfinance entity together with data on macroeconomic variables was analyzed. Through a Vector Autoregressive Model, we established a one-way causal relationship between credit and liquidity risks. The model includes the feedback effects through successive deterioration of credit portfolio and illiquidity spreading and the effects of macroeconomics and financial variables on these risks. Our results corroborate the importance of incorporating new contagion channels in microfinance institutions’ risk management, which helps microfinance institutions become financially sustainable, generating a relatively stable level of profitability that can improve the entrepreneur’s economic situation.

  • A GAME WORTH THE CANDLE' META-ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF FORMALIZATION
           ON FIRM PERFORMANCE

      Authors: ANDREA FLORIDI, BINYAM AFEWERK DEMENA, NATASCHA WAGNER
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      Under what circumstances does firm formalization yield net benefits for previously informal firms' We systematically assessed 22 primary studies in a meta-analysis of African, Asian and Latin American firms. The studies are published between 2011 and 2021 and provide 1,372 performance and business practice estimates: 40 percent of the estimates show significantly positive and 54 percent insignificant effects. The FAT-PET analysis suggests a small positive effect of formalization on firm performance. We also employ a multivariate analysis: The overall genuine effect is modest. There is a positive role for information and time for effects to materialize. Notably, more rigorous designs and recent studies tend to identify smaller and more dispersed effects. The modest effects cast doubt about the capacity of formalization policies to improve business performances suggesting that policies might better focus on prioritizing business productivity and managerial capability over formalization. Yet, we need further experimenting and fine-tuning of policy approaches to precisely identify what could make the candle of formalization worth the effort. The current evidence supports theories arguing that the rational cost-benefit argument is an overly simplistic representation of the decision to formalize and that formalization is an uncertain decision affected by multiple and interrelated aspects.

  • ECONOMIC FREEDOM, ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: EVIDENCE FROM
           PANEL DATA

      Authors: MOHSEN MOHAMMADI KHYAREH, MARJAN ZAMANI
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      The existing literature is filled with mixed findings on the effect of entrepreneurship on economic growth. In particular, previous literature treats the effect of entrepreneurship on economic growth in isolation, while we emphasize the institutional environment, and especially, economic freedom. Using data from the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, we re-explore the relationship between entrepreneurship and growth and attempt to clarify the mixed findings. The systemic link between economic freedom, entrepreneurship and economic growth is investigated by examining a panel of 54 countries (2008-2018). The results validate that overall economic freedom and its subcomponents, such as the rule of law, limited government size, regulatory efficiency and market openness promote the positive effects of entrepreneurial activity on economic growth. The results suggest that economic freedom not only directs individual efforts to entrepreneurial activity, but also affects the extent to which entrepreneurial activity encourages higher growth rates. The findings contradict policy recommendations that some measures of economic freedom are not significantly associated with entrepreneurship.

  • GENDER AND INTERNATIONAL ENGAGEMENT OF EARLY-STAGE SOCIAL SERVICE
           ENTREPRENEURS: THE ROLES OF ENTREPRENEURIAL EXIT EXPERIENCE AND INNOVATION

      Authors: TIANJIAO QIU
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      The paper empirically examines how gender affects international market engagement through its effects on entrepreneurial exit experience and innovation in early-stage social service ventures across different countries. Empirical findings from generalized linear mixed models with SAS GLIMMIX procedures support the direct effect of gender on international market engagement and the indirect effect of gender on international market engagement through entrepreneurial exit experience and innovation in early-stage social service ventures. The study shows significant gender gaps in the international market engagement of early-stage social service ventures owned by male and female entrepreneurs. The gaps appear to be rooted in gender differences in experiential learning resulting from entrepreneurial exit experience and innovation. The paper calls on governments to build gender-aware ecosystems that engage female entrepreneurs in experiential learning and innovation, thereby empowering them to grow through active international market engagement in early-stage social service ventures.

  • ENTREPRENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA: A BOON TO INCOME EQUALITY

      Authors: FOLORUNSHO M. AJIDE
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      The interconnection between income inequality and entrepreneurship in African economies is examined. The study provides answers to two critical questions: (1) Does income inequality affect entrepreneurship' and (2) What is the implication of entrepreneurship for income disparity in Africa' With the Gini coefficient used as a proxy for income inequality, data from 23 selected African countries over the period 2006-2018 are analyzed. The analysis is based on panel data econometrics, and reveals that income inequality increases entrepreneurship in Africa. It is also discovered that entrepreneurship reduces income inequality. These findings persist after utilizing the Palma ratio as an alternative proxy for income disparity in African economies. In terms of policy implications, the study shows that income disparities serve as a push factor toward entrepreneurial activities. Entrepreneurship may serve as a veritable tool for policies aiming at reducing income inequality in Africa.

  • SOCIAL NETWORKING RELATIONSHIPS AND DIGITAL MICROENTERPRISE GROWTH IN THE
           INFORMAL SECTOR: THE MEDIATING ROLE OF INDIVIDUAL ENTREPRENEURIAL
           ORIENTATION

      Authors: MODOU TOP, YANG ZHI
      Abstract: Journal of Developmental Entrepreneurship, Volume 27, Issue 04, December 2022.
      This paper aims to examine the role of social networking relationships in growing an informal sector digital microenterprise and the mediating effect of individual entrepreneurial orientation (IEO). Using data from 248 digital microenterprises in the informal sector of Senegal, this study utilizes multiple regression and Hayes process macro Model 4 to show that social networking relationships are positively associated with online informal microbusiness’ growth and IEO. It further reveals that IEO is related to digital microenterprise growth and partially mediates its link with social networking relationships. This study contributes to the social capital literature by showing that social relationships with external entities can provide resources to buffer against infrastructure and resource deficits and other growth challenges found in developing countries. It also extends the literature on IEO by facilitating a deeper understanding of individual entrepreneurial behaviors that can help transform resources from social networking relationships into growth in an informal digital environment.
