Resumo

O presente artigo tem como objetivo apresentar um diagnóstico do ecossistema empreendedor dos municípios portugueses com vista a compreender de que forma é que o ecossistema empreendedor local tem promovido o desenvolvimento de negócios. Metodologicamente, a investigação recorreu a uma abordagem qualitativa, através de entrevistas com os responsáveis pelo empreendedorismo de onze municípios portugueses. Com recurso à análise temática foi possível propor um modelo do Ecossistema Empreendedor dos Municípios Portugueses. Os resultados evidenciam que o Poder Local é fundamental para a criação de Ecossistemas Empreendedores, sendo os responsáveis pela Governance Local e pela prestação de Suporte aos agentes deste Ecossistema, bem como pela criação de redes de cooperação, especialmente entre o sector público, privado e as universidades que são basilares para o desenvolvimento deste tipo Ecossistemas.
