Entrepreneurship in the interphone businss. The constellation of individuals capitals
Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): The study of entrepreneurship in the interphone’s domain, build on the theory of capitals, in the modern man’s thesis and on the diffusion of innovation’s thesis, revealed the importance of capitals’ configuration (human, social and economic capitals) for the adoption and for the economic performance of the entrepreneurial activities.
The findings point up the importance of the individual’s perceptions and mentalities regarding the institutional and economic context and the relevance of exposing to entrepreneurial behaviors for the adoption of entrepreneurship.
Because it involves a high concentration of personal resources, the economic performance in the interphone’s domain is difficult to sustain. The high competition on the interphone’s production and installation market proved to become a powerful inhibitor for the economic performance and profitability of firms.
