Palabras clave:

emprendimiento femenino, emprendedores, mujeres, Perú, Chile


Este estudio se enfoca en caracterizar casos de negocios liderados por mujeres (NLM), que han alcanzado un alto crecimiento en el corto plazo, contradiciendo la aproximación tradicional del emprendimiento femenino asociado con la precariedad. El artículo utiliza un estudio de casos múltiples, explorando ejemplos de NLM en Chile y Perú. Los resultados muestran algunos patrones en el comportamiento emprendedor de los NLM, tales como la experiencia, estrategia de crecimiento, innovación, expansión acelerada, alta calidad, y actitud hacia el emprendimiento. Este estudio esclarece que los NLM no necesariamente están vinculados a la subsistencia y cómo las políticas públicas deben apoyar los NLM de alto crecimiento.
