Statement of the problem
Despite a growth in the use of Internet in various business aspects, a limited number of researchers have put emphasis on determining the role it plays in helping the entrepreneurs to combine the necessary factors of production to ensure business success. According to Richard Cantilion, (2000), it is entrepreneurial skills coupled with the internet use determines the economic conditions of a nation. It can thus be evident that internet can play some role in the determination of the economic trends of the society.
In the study, the research designs which comprise of quantitative and qualitative approaches are to be used. The data is to be obtained from both secondary and primary sources where a random sampling will be used to obtain 30 samples from the population of study. Besides, the analysis to provide the descriptive and summary statistics is to be done by the use of Stata software to aid in data analysis and interpretations (Ketchen & Bergh, 2006).
In the literature review, various theories and empirical studies from the previous research on entrepreneurship in connection to the internet are discussed. These include the economic theory, innovation theory of Schumpeter, and Hagen theory of entrepreneurship. Besides, it clarifies an historical background of entrepreneurship which discloses its features over the years to include innovation, functions of high achievement, teamwork, building an organization, enhancement of managerial skills and leadership, and indulgence in gap filling activity.
The primary constraints of the research are as follows:
• Insufficient data from the entrepreneurs since most of the entrepreneurs consider their information very vital, private and confidential hence are not ready to disclose to anyone.
• There is a financial constraint since it involves travelling from one region to another and purchase of research materials which are expensive.
• The time frame for collecting data, sorting, and coding them in a manner ready for analysis was quite limited.
