The entrepreneurial process has always been associated with uncertainty and risk-taking, so it can be said that the risk-taking of this process is considered an accepted part of it.Applying information and communication technology (ICT) is very effective in reducing this uncertainty. The purpose of this study is to present a value co-creation model in the field of ICT so that the basic value creation activities in the ICT ecosystem and the actors associated are determined with each activity. For this purpose, using the subject literature and meta-synthesis were identified activities and actors of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and then the main activities were selected using a survey of ICT experts. Based on the results of this analysis, a conceptual model was designed to explain ICT-based entrepreneurial activities consisting of 12 hypotheses. This model was tested using structural equation modeling in the ICT Park (Sajjad Park), which led to the identification of 10 paths with the highest factor load factor.Then, the final structures of the model were extracted by confirmatory factor analysis method including 11 stages and 48 activities. finally, the relationship between the actors and the activities was drawn in the form of a pie chart according to the meta-analysis.
