Croatia has participated in GEM every year since 2002, thus enabling stakeholders to observe trends and entrepreneurial activity patterns both within the country and in comparison to other European Union countries. This streak continued earlier this month with the launch of the latest GEM Croatia Report. Noteworthy trends include:

- In 2022, 63% of respondents believe that being an entrepreneur is a good career choice (Croatia is at the top of GEM-participating EU countries in terms of expressed intentions to start a business venture).

- For all three years between 2020-2022, Croatia tops all GEM-participating EU countries in the perception to start a business venture. In 2022, 26.4% of the adult population would like to do so, compared to 15.3% of adult population in the EU.

- Such high optimism about the opportunities and intentions of entrepreneurial activity is accompanied by high self-confidence about personal abilities to start a business venture – Croatia is again in first place among the EU countries that have participated in the GEM survey (in 2022, 73.6% in Croatia, while the EU average is 50.8%).
