GEM – Global Entrepreneurship Monitor

Anglo-Saxon countries outperform EU in entrepreneurship

Anglo-Saxon countries outperform all other countries in all entrepreneurial dimensions – entrepreneurship rate, new business ownership, women’s entrepreneurship and future potential entrepreneurs according to the new report “The entrepreneurial challenge – A comparative study of entrepreneurial dynamics in China, Europe and the US” from Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum, based on GEM Global Report 2015/16. The authors emphasize four policy areas that are particularly important for early-stage entrepreneurship; supply of skills, access to finance, regulations, fear of failure and taxes.
