Total early-stage Entrepreneurial Activity (TEA) and established businesses have decreased in Jamaica, according to the country’s new National Report. This decline can be attributed to the impact of COVID-19. Meanwhile, in France, a greater percentage of established entrepreneurs (53.9%) than early-stage entrepreneurs (42.7%) perceived public authorities’ response following COVID-19 to be more effective.
We will unpack the context for these and other findings during our next GEM National Report Findings webinar taking place on 5 April at 14:00 GMT.
If you have a vested interest in entrepreneurship in Jamaica or France, then you will not want to missing this engaging session!
International benchmarking is one of GEM's many benefits. Even if you are not from France or Jamaica, the webinar will enable you to understand the different drivers of entrepreneurship and economic growth in these countries. You can then apply the lessons to your particular context.
