Purpose: Apply the ecosystem approach to the analysis of the Galician entrepreneurial environment based on the information provided by the GEM project. Design/methodology/approach: Based in the information provided of the participating experts on the GEM-Galicia project to 2005-2017 editions. Such project frames the analysis of the entrepreneurial environment in the Entrepreneurial Framework Conditions (EFC), of the ones we identify correspondences with the Domains of the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem proposed by Isenberg (2011). Findings: The average rating of the Galician entrepreneurial ecosystem is positive, being the domains of the ecosystem more featured the Policy and Supports, the ones correspond to the government programs and the infrastructures respectively. The main obstacles to entrepreneurship are related to the Finance and Human Capital domains, referring for the latter to primary/secondary education, since when the Human Capital domain refers to post-secondary education it represents, on the contrary, one of the main incentives for entrepreneurship. Originality/value: The temporary and synthesized analysis of the entrepreneurial environment of Galicia through the entrepreneurship ecosystem approach in their participation in the GEM project, will allow to outline the characteristics of the environment entrepreneurial and formulate improvement suggestions.
