What is GEM?

Imagine a world in which entrepreneurial activity is flourishing. Sound economic policies support growth. International organizations are influencing their stakeholders around entrepreneurship. Academics’ research and teaching around entrepreneurship is generating optimal impact. Students have a better understanding about the behaviors and attitudes needed to thrive in setting up businesses. Entrepreneurs make better decisions, while businesses are more profitable.

The work of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) supports these aspirations.
