Digital technologies have nowadays a significant impact on how new business ventures are imagined and created.
The arising technology paradigm is leveraging the potential of collaboration and collective intelligence to
design and launch more robust and sustainable entrepreneurial initiatives. However, although the topic of digital
entrepreneurship is relevant and timely, there is a limited literature discussion on the real impact of digital
technologies and collaboration on the entrepreneurial process. Further research is needed to describe the nature
and characteristics of the entrepreneurial ecosystem enabled by the new socio-technical paradigm. Based on
extant literature, this article proposes a definition of digital entrepreneurship ecosystem by highlighting the
integrated digital-output and digital-environment perspectives. A collective intelligence approach is then adopted
to define a descriptive framework and identify the distinguishing genes of a digital entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Four dimensions associated to digital actors (who), digital activities (what), digital motivations (why), and digital
organization (how) are defined and discussed. The framework was also applied to describe 9 real cases of
companies and initiatives, which are analyzed as digital entrepreneurship ecosystems along the four key dimensions
presented. The article ends with a discussion about the results and a research agenda for future studies.
