Abstract. Cities are creating an environment that encourages digital growth. Cities' capacity to facilitate and drive the development of a digital core system emphasizes the importance of cities in creating the necessary circumstances for a successful ecosystem - access to talent, access to funding, access to spaces and locations, and access to markets. Cities, on the other hand, can contribute to the creation of mechanisms such as co-investment funds, in which the public and private sectors share the risk of supporting new creative businesses. All facets of manufacturing, consumption, and regulatory services could be altered by digital technologies in our everyday routines. By introducing new capabilities and business models, as well as by influencing their environment and the policy systems that govern them, they will have a significant impact on entrepreneurial ecosystems. In this article, we are looking for a model that may express policy requirements of technological entrepreneurship in the urban ecosystem, based on knowledge about the importance and requirements of entrepreneurial ecosystems, the smart city approach, and the knowledge-based development strategy.
A comparative analytical method was used to conduct this research. We review the literature on ecosystems, urban ecosystems, smart cities, and knowledge-based urban development. Then we classified the parameters of each and presented how these categories are related in a model. In the research literature and in an executive position, dealing with a model for the policy requirements of technological entrepreneurship in the urban ecosystem can explain how the issue is operationalized, examine the city as an ecosystem where entrepreneurship occurs through technology and requires its own policies.
