Resumen

El efecto transformador del espíritu empresarial está bien documentado. De hecho, el espíritu empresarial se ha relacionado con el crecimiento y la prosperidad de las naciones, contribuyendo al desarrollo sostenible de diversos sectores. En todo el mundo se ha prestado cada vez más atención al efecto transformador del espíritu empresarial y a su potencial en contextos en desarrollo y emergentes. Sin embargo, aunque se han cubierto muchas experiencias, las de algunos contextos en desarrollo y emergentes han recibido mucha menos atención. Entre estos contextos poco cubiertos se encuentra el de los Pequeños Estados Insulares en Desarrollo (PEID) del Caribe. Es importante señalar que el desarrollo del espíritu empresarial como campo puede beneficiarse de una comprensión más amplia de más contextos. Este número especial es una oportunidad para avanzar en la comprensión y las dimensiones del espíritu empresarial en un área en gran parte gris en la literatura, la región del Caribe. Este artículo inaugural desempeña un papel estratégico a la hora de situar los artículos siguientes en un conjunto más amplio de investigaciones y prácticas relacionadas con el espíritu empresarial centradas en los PEID caribeños de la Commonwealth. Tal vez lo más importante sea que el enfoque no se limita a presentar los documentos, sino que más estratégicamente proporciona un rico material contextual sobre la calidad del espíritu empresarial en la región, que a su vez constituye el telón de fondo de los documentos restantes. Se ofrece una panorámica general del espíritu empresarial, junto con un análisis de algunos de los avances históricos y contemporáneos, al tiempo que se destaca el carácter específico del espíritu empresarial en una región que está en gran medida moldeada por fuerzas que en muchos sentidos lo han convertido en algo periférico para el desarrollo. Aun así, el enfoque no es pesimista. Como tal, el documento concluye con una demostración de cómo la comprensión del espíritu empresarial en el Caribe puede contribuir e informar el desarrollo de la práctica y la teorización, de manera más general, incluyendo el avance de la comprensión de los avances no sólo en el espíritu empresarial, sino en el campo más amplio de los negocios internacionales. De hecho, las experiencias de regiones insuficientemente cubiertas como éstas son útiles en la medida en que ofrecen un nuevo terreno de pruebas para las teorías y supuestos emergentes y pueden contribuir de forma relevante a la comprensión de las teorías y supuestos emergentes. Desarrollo del espíritu empresarial como campo de investigación aún emergente.
