Global Entrepreneurship Week Policy Survey 2013

Global Entrepreneurship Week Policy Survey 2013

Ratings: (0)|Views: 7 |Likes:
The fact that Global Entrepreneurship Week is now operating in 140 countries is alone a strong indication of the globalization of the startup movement. Even in economies that were traditionally less supportive of capitalism like Venezuela or Iran, we are seeing the rise of strong entrepreneur-led startup communities. These communities are made up of a new generation of pioneers motivated by a range of factors from intellectual curiosity and an appealing startup culture to social responsibility, job shortages and economic opportunity.

Due in part to efforts like GEW, governments around the world are rapidly expanding the attention they give to accelerating new and young firm formation. The emergence of “Startup Acts” and “startup policy advisors” in the executive branches of many governments is early evidence of this trend. However, for governments to be smarter about how they help, they need better data, research and analysis to identify and respond to the real barriers to startups and scale-ups.

This annual GEW Policy Survey is a small step toward asking entrepreneurs for their views on how these policymakers can be smarter in smoothing the path for nascent entrepreneurs and early stage firms.
