Starting a new business is a demanding task anywhere; nonetheless, each country features its own context influencing the process. The IESA Entrepreneurship Center is preparing brief histories of successful Venezuelan entrepreneurs in order to identify steps that distinguish business start-ups. Those surveyed were all able to identify several diverse business opportunities at hand, both during the start-up stage and follow-up growth and consolidation. Perhaps the most important requisite is getting to know and understand those making up the entrepreneur's circle: clients, partners, suppliers, and workers. Given the above preconditions and the enthusiasm that distinguishes Venezuelans, the chances for success will be greater.
