Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is a not-for-profit academic research consortium that produes an annual assessment of the entrepreneurial activity, aspirations and attitudes of individuals across a wide range of countries. The data collected is ‘harmonized’ by a central team of experts, guaranteeing its quality and facilitating cross-national comparisons.
The program has three main objectives:
- Measure differences in the level of entrepreneurial activity between countries
- Uncover factors leading to appropriate levels of entrepreneurship
- Suggest policies that may enhance the national level of entrepreneurial activity.
