Resumen

El compromiso exportador suele ser un aspecto empresarial clave para explicar por qué unas empresas exportan más que otras. En este artículo se analizan los determinantes del compromiso exportador en las pymes colombianas desde el punto de vista comportamental y actitudinal mediante un modelo de redes neuronales estimado sobre una muestra de 306 pymes exportadoras. Los resultados permiten concluir que las pymes colombianas se centran en invertir sus recursos financieros propios para impulsar las exportaciones, y la actitud del empresario al riesgo resulta determinante para asumir la actividad exportadora como estrategia empresarial generadora de mayores rendimientos.

This article discusses the determinants of export commitment in Colombian SMEs from the behavioral and attitudinal viewpoint using a neural network model estimated on a sample of 306 exporting SMEs. The results suggest that Colombian SMEs focus on investing their own resources to boost exports and employers' behavior risks making decisive for export activity as a business strategy that generates higher returns.
