Galindo-Monsalve, R. (Rafael) | 2013-11-18
Escuela de Ingeniería de Antioquia (EIA) has established the development of the entrepreneur spirit as one of its formative axis. Therefore, the Entrepreneurship area identified the need to promote the entrepreneurial culture on its community for which it was required, in the first place, to do the diagnosis of its existence. Initially, a theoretical journey was carried out with the purpose of endorsing the concepts of culture, entrepreneur spirit, and entrepreneurial culture, which allowed the identification of the six components of the entrepreneur spirit to evaluate: form to think, to reason and to act centered in the opportunities; consideration of the risk; creativity and innovation; value generation; proactivity, and search of information. Then, these components were analyzed starting from surveys and interviews in depth, to identify the perceptions of the members of the community. The result of the diagnosis was that the EIA community has those components in different levels of development. It is recommended as future work to perform periodic diagnosis of the entrepreneurial culture in order to validate its improvement.
