The rate of fear of failure is 35% and it is similar to the average rate of efficiency-driven economies.
Indonesia has high intention to engage in entrepreneurial activities. Based on the survey, the percentage of 18 - 64 year old individuals (who have not yet been involved in any stage of entrepreneurial activity) who intend to start a business within three years is 35%.
