The article proposes to use an ecosystem approach to the study of regional entrepreneurship, which allows you to focus on the specific spatio-temporal context of entrepreneurship development, taking into account the nature of the interactions of economic agents and their relationships with business environment.

A mathematical model is proposed that is based on the evaluation of the function of the ratio of business profit growth resulting from the formation of a specific environment in artificial entrepreneurial ecosystems to the total operational  costs incurred by the business entity. A model has been developed for assessing the benefits of a resident entrepreneur’s entering an artificial entrepreneurial ecosystem.
