Abstract

Entrepreneurship is important for the growth of a country's technology business sector. Project Link Investments' mission is to promote entrepreneurship by creating an angel investment network to fund startup companies. In order to develop a set of best practices for Link Investments, we researched case studies of angel investment models and assessed cultural constraints that influence those models by surveying entrepreneurs in Costa Rica. We also used archival data to analyze the possible economic impact of entrepreneurship. The implementation of our recommended practices will help promote the development of an environment of entrepreneurship in Costa Rica.
