Resumo: Increasing entrepreneurship has become an objective for many governments, local authorities, business associations and universities. One of the strategies adopted in many western countries, including Portugal, has been the creation of idea or project or idea competitions. These contests vary from a national to a regional scope. Many universities in Europe create competitions exclusively to their students. The aim of this research is to question the participants on these contests about the effects of their participation. A sample was created with the help of the organizers of such contests in Portugal, in the past couple of years. This sample included winners and losers, projects selected to the final phases of the contests and projects not selected. A questionnaire was sent to this sample, addressing their opinion on the results of their participation. The objective was to evaluate whether the participation in the competition influentiated the participants’ willingness and ability to create a company. It also tried to assess the contribution to the participants’ capacity to make good projects, gather resources and actually create startups.
