The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is the world’s foremost study of entrepreneurship. GEM began in 1999 with the aim of finding out why some countries are more ‘entrepreneurial’ than others. 17 years on, GEM is the richest resource of information on the subject.
“Through a vast, centrally coordinated, internationally executed data collection effort, GEM is able to provide high quality information, comprehensive reports and interesting stories, which greatly enhance the understanding of the entrepreneurial phenomenon – but it is more than that. It is also an ever-growing community of believers in the transformative benefits of entrepreneurship. GEM is a trusted resource on entrepreneurship for key international organisations like the United Nations, World Economic Forum, World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), providing custom datasets, special reports and expert opinion.” (www.gemconsortium.org)
These organizations then leverage GEM’s rich data and network of local experts to promote policies towards entrepreneurship around the world.
In each economy, GEM looks at two elements:
- The entrepreneurial behaviour and attitudes of individuals.
- The national context and how that impacts entrepreneurship.
All of the information that is gained is carefully analysed by local GEM researchers, which allows a deep understanding of the environment for entrepreneurship and provides valuable insights.
