Abstract

In this work we seek to assess how perception variables affect on the timely decision to undertake in Chile, measured by the nascent entrepreneurship, ie, those entrepreneurs who are starting a new business, including any form of self-employment or commersialisation of all types of goods or services. This, controlling for other relevant variables of demographic and economic nature . It seems particularly interesting to quantify how affect self-confidence, perception of opportunity, fear of failure and an entrepreneur meet in the probability of deciding to undertake, given the high correlation with this variable (decision to undertake a new business). Document will use the work "Perceptual Variables and Nascent Entrepreneurship" (2005) of Maria Pia Arenius Minniti as a mother and will replicate it to the specific case of Chile. Furthermore, we distinguish between those who undertake by chance and necessity, since the effects of both on the development of the country are dissimilar (as Acs and Varga 2005, opportunity entrepreneurship has a positive effect on economic development, while the necessity has no effect) and naturally respond to different incentives and factors.
