The impact of digital competences on entrepreneurship in Mexico 

Digital competence involves a mix of knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to various ends (communication, creative expression, information management, personal development), domains (everyday life, work, privacy and safety, legal aspects), and levels (cognitive and competitive). 

This research project incorporates the experiences of more than 200 entrepreneurs who had a business that failed in Mexico. Their experiences were collected using a mixed methodology that incorporated both qualitative and quantitative tools. 

For this study, we relied on the European Digital Competence Framework developed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), which identified 21 competences grouped into five key areas: information and data literacy, communication and collaboration, digital content creation, safety, and problem solving.
