This paper analyzes the components of the regional technological entrepreneurship ecosystem which include the entrepreneurial ecological population and supporting environment from the perspective of ecological theory, and further builds the evaluation index system of population and environment symbiotic performance in the ecosystem. By using the entropy weight coefficient model and the gray system evaluation model, collecting data through questionnaire survey from the characteristic town of technological industry of Hangzhou in China, this paper evaluates population and environment symbiotic performance of the technological entrepreneurship ecosystem and illustrates the final correlation degree is 0.783, indicating that the overall construction and operation situation of the entrepreneurial ecosystem is acceptable. Except for the scientific and technological environment, cultural environment, natural environment and government services, there is a gap with the ideal situation at the correlation degree of market environment, technological intermediaries, science, education and technological start-ups.
