Role of Entrepreneurship in the COVID-19 era

Author(s): Cruz Garcia, Julio E Crespo

The reliability and validity studies of entrepreneurship have focused on the instruments that measure diverse traits, but only those that are within a threshold of three to seven items and discriminate between the stimuli mediated by technology concerning the face-to-face surveys. Face, avoiding the models that specify trajectories of relations between determinant variables of the entrepreneurial activity, is necessary for the investigation of the influence of the technologies on the innovation of processes more than on the optimization of resources. The objective of this work was to establish the psychometric properties of an instrument that measured six organizational dimensions of entrepreneurship in coffee growers in central Mexico. A nonexperimental, cross-sectional, and exploratory study was carried out with a non-probabilistic selection of 117 women coffee merchants. We observed a structure of six dimensions related to values, support, recognition, stimulation, solidarity, and collaboration that explained 63% of the total variance, but the research design limited the results to the research scenario, suggesting the extension of the study to other contexts and samples.
