Resumen

MAZZEI DE GRAZIA, LEONARDO. COMMERCIAL ENTREPRENEURS OF CONCEPCIÓN AT THE END OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2008, n.498, pp.97-125. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622008000200007.

This article analyzes the formation of a community of commercial entrepreneurs in Concepción at the end of the nineteenth century, when the expansion the regional economy underwent from the 1850s reached its culmination. The main source for this study is Registros de Comercio, which recorded the creation of all sorts of partnerships. We have established that the dominant businesses in the region were the large foreign companies operating in Valparaíso; the only local firm whose capital and activities compared favorably to those foreign firms was Mauricio Gleisner & Cía. We also analyzed the number and type of partnerships established in Concepción, their main activities, and the national origin of their members. In addition, we distinguish three categories of firms according to the amount of initial capital. We conclude that it was the group of middlesized companies that saw the predominance of European merchants, which at the national level was denounced by nationalistic intellectuals as a displacement of domestic entrepreneurs by foreign entrepreneurs. Finally, we examine the role of women in the region’s commercial sector.

Palabras clave : Entrepreneurs; commerce; partnerships; capitals; nationals; Europeans.
