|Abstract:||Entrepreneurship is considered a dynamo for economic development. Certainly it has arise also the belief that it might be useful to foster social development in deprived communities. This assumption is challenged through a research done in central Mexico. Nine different entrepreneurship models are recognized. Entrepreneurship programs from two different rural communities in the state of Guanajuato are analyzed also from a community viewpoint. Among the findings of this project, probably the most promising is to recognize that individual economic development and community social development are not as linked as we suspected initially. They seem to be subjects from different domains. A proposal to increase the life quality for future generations on rural communities is presented. It is centered on creating and maintaining self-organized web-based networks.|
