Fuerza de Carácter y Continuidad Emprendedora: Evidencia de Ecuador

Palabras clave: continuidad emprendedora, emprendimiento, fuerza de carácter, resiliencia

Resumen

El objetivo del presente estudio es analizar si la fuerza de carácter, la tendencia de una persona a mostrar perseverancia en el esfuerzo, constancia en el interés y pasión en objetivos de largo plazo, influye en la continuidad emprendedora en Ecuador. Empleando una prueba chi-cuadrado, compara el nivel de fuerza de carácter de dos grupos de emprendedores, uno con iniciativas empresariales avanzadas y otro con iniciativas menos maduras, y demuestra que los emprendedores que tienen mayor fuerza de carácter, según evaluación de terceros, construyen empresas con mayor capacidad de seguir operando. Este hallazgo sugiere que, pese a competir en ecosistemas con limitaciones, personas con fuerza de carácter son capaces de superar obstáculos externos y consiguen que su iniciativa empresarial avance.
