Entrepreneurship as way to contain the population exodus: a local development proposal
by Marcos Ferasso; Jorge Alberto Velloso Saldanha
International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business (IJESB), Vol. 14, No. 2, 2011

Abstract: The lack of job opportunities in a region will lead to socio-economic imbalance and gender inequality. The problem logic is centred on the growth of employment demand and income in order to avoid population exodus. The general aim of the project is the implementation of a regional capacitation for the qualification of the workforce and encouragement to entrepreneurship. The people who will benefit from the capacitation are those without access to qualification courses as well as those who want to acquire information for the start of their own business. The project was developed based on the Delphi method, which involves observation and administration of questionnaires. The Delphi method was used with the managers of selected organisations in the Region of Sao Miguel do Oeste (Santa Catarina, Brazil) and worked as the basis for the development of the log frame by using the log frame methodology. Qualification and specialisation of small and micro companies will enable improvements in the management of businesses and contribute to the reduction of business mortality.
