The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is the world’s leading research consortium dedicated to understanding the relationship between entrepreneurship and national economic development.
For the past ten years GEM reports have been the only source of comparable data across a large variety of countries on attitudes toward entrepreneurship, start-up and established business activities, and aspirations of entrepreneurs for their businesses.
This 11th report in the GEM series focuses on the impact of the recession on entrepreneurship and the extent to which entrepreneurship can help reverse a downward economic trend.
Also included are:
1) a special report on global perspectives of social entrepreneurship;
2) an analysis of the impact of the recession on funding to support new businesses; and
3) updates on entrepreneurial attitudes and perceptions, entrepreneurial activity, and entrepreneurial aspirations.
