CAMPOS, Nédson Antônio  and  DUARTE, Francisco José da Castro Moura. The social dimension of the entrepreneurial activity. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2013, vol.16, n.spe, pp. 13-23. ISSN 1516-3717.

This paper discusses the need to problematize the representation of the entrepreneurial activity in order to contribute to improving the performance of programs that aim to encourage and support its practice. Traditionally, this activity is analyzed considering predominantly the individual and economic dimensions, which generates a limited representation of it. This text aims to show that the social or collective dimension of entrepreneurial work is paramount to understand its practice, which can be best represented as a process of accumulation of associations forming a socio-technical network.

Keywords : Entrepreneurship; New companies; Socio-technical network.
