Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Scotland 2009

  • Levie, J. (2009). (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor)
  • Abstract: GEM Scotland 2009 has ten years of data to draw on, with around 2000 individuals aged between 16 and 80 interviewed each year. In the UK in 2009, 30,003 individuals aged between 16 and 80 were interviewed, close to the 2008 sample size of 32,007. • New questions in the 2009 survey enable identification of the relative importance of economic, social and environmental goals that entrepreneurs have for their businesses, reasons for fear of failure, how long it takes people to start a business or abandon a new business attempt, how many people tried to start a business in the past year, and how entrepreneurs felt the global economic slowdown impacted on their business. • Social entrepreneurship was a special topic for GEM this year, enabling comparison of Scottish and UK rates of social entrepreneurship with those in other countries, using a definition similar to that developed by the GEMUK team. • The link between family business and new business is examined for the first time in the GEM Scotland report series.
