It is indisputable that society is facing a time of great change and uncertainty toward the future. The situation around the world due to contingency has generated disruptions in all fields, and education is no exception. The digital transformation of educational institutions has increased vertiginously at all levels of instruction. The current reality leads organizations to worry about finding a way to train people with relevant skills that allow them to deal with the challenges that lie ahead. So, universities play an important role in the development of competencies that equip their graduates not only to enter the labor market but also to generate new employment options through entrepreneurship that contributes to the solution of major global problems. The purpose of this document is to present a doctoral thesis project that contributes to educational innovation based on technologies that identify entrepreneurial skills in university students. This study followed a design-based research methodology in which different quantitative and qualitative instruments were applied to collect data supportive of the objectives that had been set. It was found that this project contributes by analyzing the students' profiles to identify and understand better their entrepreneurial skills and interests and strengthening them transversally throughout their careers through connection with the university entrepreneurial ecosystem. The results show it is possible to develop an e-learning educational model that can be scaled to other contexts and contribute to the development of an entrepreneurial spirit, a competency that is difficult for students to achieve.
