Chapter 17: Tracking the entrepreneurial journey: from inspiration to perspiration

Colin Donaldson, Jorge Villagrasa and Felipe Sánchez


This chapter seeks to provide a means to create an effective enabling environment for the promotion of entrepreneurial behaviors. We draw from our own experience at “Marina de Empresas” (MdE), an entrepreneurial ecosystem (EE) located in Valencia, Spain. MdE provides a unique context in that it covers the complete entrepreneurial cycle (i.e., training, incubation/acceleration, and entrepreneurial financing) and therefore influences entrepreneurial outcomes. Based on Koltai´s (2016) dynamic Six + Six Model, the ecosystem is tracked and explained to convey insights on the practices, events, and support systems at MdE. We examine the different phases of the entrepreneurial process, recognizing that learning is not confined to the classroom or to any one stage. The entrepreneurial approach is grounded in active connections from intention to creation. Our aim is to provide unique insight on the value of an EE as it transcends the academic environment of a university institution and looks toward a community established for and dedicated to entrepreneurs.
