The entrepreneurial potential a state owned has been seen as driving power on development of that state in the business administration literature for a long time. Pursuing incentive policies of the state in people who have entrepreneurial spirit to take risk makes the work easier. It is obvious that big businesses that direct its sector have grown with the state support in developed countries. Provided supports, exemptions, exceptions and reductions to the entrepreneurs by state make entrepreneurial spirit sustainable. In this study, especially the importance of businesses which are defined as start-up for Turkey will be emphasized. Start-up businesses will be described as techno-entrepreneurship and the provided supports will be discussed. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
