The major entrepreneurship reports release valuable information about the entrepreneurial ecosystem, once a year. Questions like “How do Portuguese people feel like towards entrepreneurship? Are they involved or intend to be in any kind of entrepreneurial activity?” or “Is Portugal an entrepreneurial-friendly country?” just get answered.
This year is no exception, and since the 2014 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) and the 2014 Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report (AGER) are now available, we decided to sum up the results for you.
The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor
Created in 1999 as a partnership between the London Business School and Babson College, GEM has been collecting, analyzing and interpreting data across the world on the capacity of individuals to act entrepreneurially (i.e., proactively, innovatively and responsibly). In its 16th edition, the 2014 GEM survey covered 73 economies, representing 72.4% of the world’s population and 90% of the world’s GDP.
