Abstract: The promotion of entrepreneurship has become one of the main policies of the Chilean development strategy in the last decade and has been considered as a means to improve local development. The government declared as a success the creation of 250,000 new firms in the last four years. This article uses an occupational definition of entrepreneurship to analyze the scope of this apparent revolution and its location patterns in 2009 and 2011 with information from the Socioeconomic Characterization Survey (CASEN). The results show that it is not appropriate to talk about an entrepreneurship revolution in Chile. Furthermore, the analysis of spatial patterns and entrepreneurship clusters reveals high heterogeneity among local areas according to the characteristics of their entrepreneurs. In this context, national entrepreneurship policies exclusively oriented to the increase in the number of firms could perpetuate spatial inequality.
