This chapter studies how 4-helix entrepreneurial ecosystems determine KIBS (Knowledge Intensive Business Services) mainly created by second- and third-generation family firms, and how their family and non-family members influence future entrepreneurs. The answers of 535 full-time students ages 18-24 years old, randomly distributed between men and women, were analyzed. Findings of this chapter are: a) Mothers have the highest impact (39.4%) on their children's decision making compared to fathers (22.4%); b) Professors have the least impact (3.8%); c) Franchises is a good option for business to grow; d) Firms using 3-F (family, friends, and self-financing) strategies and treasury stock operations have a better chance of growing.
