Abstract
This paper surveys Ecuadorian entrepreneurs to ascertain the differences between
middle-class and upper-class entrepreneurs and identify the variables associated
with the “success” of a business. The paper also explores the variables that can
determine the probability of upward intergenerational mobility. The paper finds
that, although the level of social capital among Ecuadorian entrepreneurs is weak,
it positively affects the chances of being a dynamic entrepreneur.
