The 2017-18 GEM Report completes its 19 years of measuring entrepreneurship-related activities. The study had a noble mission of generating globally-comparative data of entrepreneurial activity. It helped identify factors determining national levels of entrepreneurial activity as well as policies aimed at enhancing entrepreneurial activity. It measures entrepreneurship through surveys and interviews of various field experts, conducted by the teams at respective countries. The GEM survey generates a variety of relevant, primary information on different aspects of entrepreneurship and provides harmonised measures about individuals’ attributes and their activities in different phases of venturing (from nascent to start-up to established business and to discontinuation). The GEM Report 2017-18 covers results based on 54 economies completing the Adult Population Survey (APS) and the National Expert Survey (NES). The report provides insights into entrepreneurial activities in India. The GEM India study was conducted using a well-established GEM research methodology, consistent across all participating countries, thus enabling a cross-country comparison. The APS was conducted with 4000 respondents. Questions were based on generating information regarding the level of entrepreneurial activity in this country based on the national framework conditions, whereas, the NES was conducted on 72 national experts. The NES in India focuses on the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and with regard to the nine entrepreneurial framework conditions.
