Keywords: culture of Inno-preneurs, human capital, development.


In the age of new technologies and globalization, individual and organizational ideas are different. New ideas and new practical models are developed for socio-economic purposes. The vision of entrepreneurs evolves because the first reflections have been centered on the idea of the individual and his behavior which can only be revealed by him, but companies can concretize new cases of innovation. The term ‘entrepreneurship’ has become a bit old-fashioned; the new style of managerial behavior is called ‘the culture of Inno-preneurs’. This study is based on a theoretical framework and on a conceptual, analytical methodology for tackling the subject of Inno-preneurs in a deep way (concept and definitions, characteristics, leadership, roles in organizations v. entrepreneurship, culture and behavioral spirit of innovation, models, real cases) and finally it proposes a practical model.



En la era de las nuevas tecnologías y la globalización, las ideas organizacionales e individuales han cambiado. Nuevas ideas y modelos prácticos son desarrollados con fines socioeconómicos. La concepción sobre los emprendedores ha evolucionado debido a que las reflexiones iniciales estaban fundamentadas en una idea del individuo emprendedor y su conducta que solo él podía revelar, pero ahora las empresas pueden concretar nuevas prácticas de innovación. El término ‘emprendimiento’ se ha vuelto algo anticuado; el nuevo estilo de conducta gerencial se llama ‘la cultura de los inno-emprendedores’. Este estudio está basado en un marco teórico y una metodología conceptual y analítica para abordar la temática de los inno-emprendedores de una forma profunda (concepto y definiciones, características, liderazgo, roles en las organizaciones frentes al emprendimiento, cultura y espíritu del comportamiento de innovación, modelos, casos reales) y finalmente propone un modelo práctico.

Palabras clave: cultura de inno-emprendedores; capital humano; desarrollo.
