This paper aims to determine the overall development of Innovation Capacities in Society (CSI) in Social Production Companies (EPS) within a 21st-century Socialist framework in Venezuela. The methodology consisted on the research of official documentary information at national level as well as specialized social economy topics, innovation and an interview. The most relevant result is that it is not possible to develop CSI in EPS in the short term, nor within the context of 21st-century Socialism nor any other development model adopted in Venezuela due to the non-existent and / or precarious "culture of innovation" and "culture of partnership" in Venezuelan society in general, as these are essential conditions to advancing innovative, partnership processes. The conclusion is the need to carry out educational and cultural values with the aim to promote societal innovation processes in EPS and in the various innovative Venezuelan actors.
