Abstract

This paper presents the main findings extracted from a quantitative and qualitative research mapping of the Brazilian startup entrepreneurial ecosystem. The analysis was set up based on the six entrepreneurship determinant categories defined by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), which are: the regulatory framework; market conditions; access to finance; the creation and diffusion of knowledge; entrepreneurial capabilities; and entrepreneurship culture. The study involved gathering quantitative data from secondary bases underlying each one of the six pillars and interviewing Brazilian representatives of the determinants indicated above, to proceed to understand which development stage Brazil is in as concerns encouraging entrepreneurial practice and the favorability of the entrepreneurial ambiance in the country, mainly in regards to the country’s regulatory structure.
