En el presente trabajo se propone que se utilice la Teoría Económica Institucional y más concretamente los planteamientos de Douglass North (1990) como marco teórico para el estudio de los factores que condicionan la creación de empresas. Para ello, se plantea la importancia de las instituciones como determinantes de la actividad económica, se repasa la literatura existente que aplica dicha teoría a la creación de empresas, y se trata de dar respuesta a la siguiente pregunta: ¿por qué aplicar la Teoría Económica Institucional para el estudio de la creación de empresas? / In this paper Institutional Economics Theory and more concretely the work by Douglass North (1990) is pointed out as the theoretical framework for the analysis of conditioning factors to entrepreneurship. The paper revises the most relevant literature that applies this theory to the study of new firm creation and states the importance of institutions to the economic activity. The main question set out in the article is the following: Why can we use Institutional Economics theory to the analysis of entrepreneurship?
