    La actividad emprendedora y competitividad: factores que inciden sobre los emprendedores
    (Instituto Complutense de Estudios Internacionales (ICEI), 2011) Galindo Martín, Miguel Ángel; Méndez Picazo, María Teresa
    La competividad en un sentido amplio se fundamenta en una serie de pilares en los que los emprendedores desempeñan un papel importante. Ello junto con la relación positiva que guardan con el crecimiento económico hace que sea necesario que se diseñen medidas adecuadas para estimular dicha actividad. En este artículo, además de exponer las características del emprendedurismo, analizaremos los efectos que ejercen las políticas fiscal y monetaria sobre los emprendedores.

    Relationship between ambidexterity and entrepreneurial intensity
    (Taylor & Francis, 2020) Castaño Martínez, María Soledad; Galindo Martín, Miguel Ángel; Méndez Picazo, María Teresa; Palacios Marqués, Daniel
    Within organisational analysis, a concept that has been gaining importance has been organisational ambidexterity, where two factors play an important role: entrepreneurial intensity and innovations. The objective of this article is to analyse the relationship between entrepreneurial intensity and ambidexterity. The conceptualisation of ambidexterity distinguishes between ambidextrous activities and ambidextrous outcomes. To carry out this objective, we have tested several theoretical relationships. We have used partial least squares methodology to develop an empirical study in 25 European countries. Results confirm that collaboration networks have a positive effect on entrepreneurship intensity. This effect is greater than the one obtained by ambidextrous activities or new technologies. We also show that entrepreneurship intensity has a mediating role between ambidextrous activities and ambidextrous outcomes.

    Digital transformation, digital dividends and entrepreneurship: A quantitative analysis
    (Elsevier, 2019-08) Miguel-Ángel Galindo-Martín; María-Soledad Castaño-Martínez; Méndez Picazo, María Teresa
    The literature traditionally has focused its attention on the relationship between innovation and entrepreneurial activity. From this perspective, new innovations are accompanied by digital transformations that enhance value creation. However, it is also important to consider the effect of digital dividends on society overall as well as on entrepreneurship activity. Studies generally do not address this latter possibility. This paper analyses the theoretical and quantitative effects of digital transformation and digital dividends on entrepreneurial activity, that is, the broader developmental benefits that using these technologies brings, in the shape of digital transformation. Partial least square (PLS) estimation is used to develop an empirical estimation for the case of 29 European countries.

    Effects of sociocultural and economic factors on social entrepreneurship and sustainable development
    (ScienceDirect, 2021-04) Miguel-Angel Galindo-Martín; María-Soledad Castaño-Martínez; Méndez Picazo, María Teresa
    Concern about environmental problems has led to more attention being paid to the sustainable development objective. Social entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurship in general, show a direct relationship with this objective, due mainly to the activities carried out by entrepreneurs regarding the development of new products, the search for new markets, and the introduction of innovations. Because of this, it is important to identify the variables that influence both types of entrepreneurship to adequately design measures to stimulate sustainable development through these activities. These variables can be grouped into two groups: sociocultural factors and economic factors. The objective of this paper is to analyze the behavior of these two groups over general entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship, in addition to the impact of these two types of entrepreneurship on sustainable development. To carry out this analy sis, we have developed an empirical analysis with structural equations for the case of 15 OECD countries between 2015 and 2016

    Digitalization, entrepreneurship and competitiveness: an analysis from 19 European countries
    (Springer Link, 2023-03-16) Miguel-Ángel Galindo-Martín; María-Soledad Castaño-Martínez; Méndez Picazo, María Teresa
    In light of the economic situation resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, economists have claimed that an improvement in competitiveness can enhance economic growth. A greater degree of competitiveness allows the relevant actors to engage in entrepreneurial activity in new markets and to create market niches that promote job creation. Among the factors that can stimulate competitiveness, entrepreneurship and digitalization play relevant roles. Digital technologies have generated new business opportunities for entrepreneurs; likewise, digital entrepreneurship allows different entrepreneurs to connect via a platform, thus facilitating access to global markets with growth potential. The fundamental objective of this paper is to study the relationships among digitalization, entrepreneurship and competitiveness in light of the factors that influence the digitalization process. An empirical analysis of 19 European countries is conducted, and fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis is used to obtain the combinations of economic and social variables that affect competitiveness and entrepreneurship. The results of the empirical analysis show that to stimulate entrepreneurial activity, a country must exhibit an environment that is favourable to digitalization as well as an investment in talent that allows the relevant actors to take advantage of the benefits of digital technologies.
