The transition from urban management to entrepreneurialism is an important issue in regional studies in recent years. While European and American cities were pioneers in these processes and the Latin American metropolises adapted their principles to a different reality, intermediate cities in this region seem to have copied the models of their environment uncritically applying them into a context by important urban and social deficiencies and low standards of urban governance. The result has been a transition from «non-managerialism» to urban entrepreneurialism, analyzed and interpreted in this article from a case study of Ecuador.
