  • Abstract: GEM is a major research project aimed at describing and analysing entrepreneurial processes within a wide range of countries. GEM has three main objectives: • To measure differences in entrepreneurial attitudes, activity and aspirations among economies. • To uncover factors determining the nature and level of national entrepreneurial activity. • To identify policy implications for enhancing entrepreneurship in an economy. As the 2010 GEM report1 explained, GEM is based on the following premises. First, an economy’s prosperity is highly dependent on a dynamic entrepreneurship sector. Second, an economy’s entrepreneurial capacity is composed of individuals from all groups in society with the ability and motivation to start businesses, and requires positive societal perceptions about entrepreneurship. Third, high-growth entrepreneurship is a key contributor to new employment in an economy, and national competitiveness depends on innovative and cross-border entrepreneurial ventures. In 2010, GEM surveyed 59 economies, with over 180,000 individual interviews and over 2000 expert interviews. As shown in Table 1.1, these economies represent the largest most geographically and economically diverse group surveyed to date. Together, they comprise over 52% of the world’s population and 84% of the world’s GDP. composed of individuals from all groups in society with the ability and motivation to start businesses, and requires positive societal perceptions about entrepreneurship.
