GEM Global Report

GEM - Global Reports

The 2017/18 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) reports that entrepreneurship levels are stable or on the rise globally and that opportunity-driven entrepreneurship predominates, but there has been a worrying drop in job creation prospects across all economic development levels. Fifty-four world economies participated in the 2017/18 GEM survey covering 67.8% of the world’s population and 86% of the world’s GDP.

The 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) survey represents the 18th consecutive year that GEM has tracked rates of entrepreneurship across multiple phases of entrepreneurial activity; assessed the characteristics, motivations and ambitions of entrepreneurs; and explored the attitudes societies have towards this activity. This report includes results based on 65 world economies completing the Adult Population Survey (APS) (between the ages of 18 and 64 years) and 66 economies completing the National Expert Survey (NES). GEM countries in the 2016 survey cover 69.2% of the world’s population and 84.9% of the world’s GDP.

Each year GEM countries use the data collected to compile national reports describing the entrepreneurial ecosystem and allowing for cross-country comparisons. Many provide recommendations as to what is both hindering and enhancing entrepreneurial activities and what could be done by policy makers to improve the levels of entrepreneurial activities and stimulate SMME development which is vital for the well-being and prosperity of a country. This report, which is the second in the series, puts together a composite of policy briefs from a select number of countries highlighting an initiative in that country which has had a dramatic effect of improving entrepreneurship. It is hoped that other countries could learn from these initiatives, not necessarily by copying them but adapting them to their own environment.
