Abstract

Entrepreneurship has a major impact on economic development and poverty reduction; for instance, in developed countries, it has been shown to impact the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) from 5 to 7%. It is also observed that those who undertake the entrepreneurial challenge tend to invest more in their education, health and welfare in favor of their families, encourage their children to learn to prepare and, thus, promote the desire to grow. Nonetheless, in this 21st century, they still face strong challenges for their full development. For this reason, it is imperative to know the entrepreneurial capacity and the limitations to convert that entrepreneurial capacity into real entrepreneurship. This article shows a statistical analysis of the entrepreneurial capacity by gender. The contribution of this paper is to use the covariance analysis model (ANCOVA) with explanatory variables of reason and dichotomous scales, where the entrepreneurial capacity, measured with Likert-type scales, is the regression. A 20 questions survey was applied fort data compilation. The final objective was to analyze the entrepreneurial capacity between men and women and to determine if there are significant differences among them, as well as the constraints that have blocked the generation of entrepreneurship, even in those individuals with high entrepreneurial capacity. The results show that there are significant differences in entrepreneurship between genders.
