Este trabajo analiza los cambios en la iniciativa emprendedora (entrepreneurship) de las empresas públicas tras su privatización, en su doble faceta de venta de capital y apertura de los mercados. Los resultados confirman para una muestra de empresas españolas privatizadas entre 1985 y 2000 que la iniciativa emprendedora aumenta significativamente. Tras la privatización las empresas aumentan la innovación de producto, de proceso y organizativa; desarrollan nuevos negocios a nivel nacional, refuerzan su actividad internacional y emprenden procesos de renovación estratégica. Además, los resultados muestran que estos cambios son más drásticos cuando la competencia es elevada. / This work analyses the changes in entrepreneurship of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) after privatization, including sales of firms and deregulation. A sample of Spanish firms privatized between 1985 and 2000 shows that these companies have experienced a significant increase in entrepreneurship. After privatization their level of product, process and organizational innovation is higher; they also develop new businesses at domestic level, reinforce their international activity and embark on strategic renewal processes. In addition, we have found that these changes become more drastic when competition is high.
