El objetivo de este artículo es identificar determinantes que llevan a los individuos a la toma de la decisión de ser empresarios en Medellín Área Metropolitana en 2009. Mediante modelos logit y probit multinomial, y logit binario secuencial, se estima la probabilidad de que una persona tome la decisión ocupacional de ser empresario, independiente formal, empleado o independiente informal, siendo el primer estado aquel que genera mayor efecto en el desarrollo de la región. Los resultados permiten observar que la educación, el uso de tecnologías de información y telecomunicaciones, y el capital financiero son las variables que más con- tribuyen en la probabilidad de ser empresario. Estos resultados sugieren nuevos elementos a la discusión de política pública relacionada con el emprendimiento y fortalecimiento empresarial.
