Abstract

The present research seeks the categories of women's satisfaction in undertaking an entrepreneurial venture, trying to make a hierarchy of the categories and describing them in a particular way. Therefore, the objective of the research was to identify the categories associated with the satisfaction experienced by women when undertaking an entrepreneurial venture. The methodology was phenomenological and descriptive, with a qualitative approach, where 103 interviews were conducted with women entrepreneurs in the city of Santa Marta, Colombia related to the satisfaction they felt for having carried out their entrepreneurship. It was found that satisfaction is given by achievement, overcoming, doing what they like, and being considered as an example; in addition, satisfaction is expressed in feelings such as joy, happiness, and euphoria. Based on the results and their evaluation, lines to be considered in future studies are offered.
