La Experiencia Brasileña en la Superación de Dificultades de Empresas de Base Tecnológica en Incubadora

Pedro Paulo Andrade Júnior

Abstract


The aim of this study is to evaluate the Brazilian experience in overcoming the difficulties of technology-based companies in incubators in order to propose improvement actions using incubators in Brazil as reference. The adopted methodology prioritizes a qualitative focus. Research is characterized as descriptive-exploratory and is conducted in the form of a multi-case study. Results allowed the identification of difficulties of companies residing in incubators and relevance in overcoming these difficulties based on four types of restrictions: financing, management, production and commercialization, and the subsequent proposal of elements that allow improvement actions. The study contributes to the management practice by proposing a set of improvement actions that can be adopted by companies and incubators to enhance performance.

Keywords
