Abstract

The aim of this paper is to characterize the Latin American entrepreneur from Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) model. For this, the fronts that adhere to both the cultural and educational framework as motivation and entrepreneurial skills are integrated.The study is descriptive, using a two-stage longitudinal analysis, applied to the GEM 2010 data base. Results showed that the Latin American entrepreneur can be characterized in four dimensions (average or standard, innovative primary and exporters) associated with the degree of innovation (novelty), the technological level, the degree of processing of the products or services offered (added value) and external market orientation.However, these efforts and scenarios of opportunities could be affected by the design and implementation of government policies that can create barriers or incentives to entrepreneurship as a catalyst for economic growth of the countries.
