Launch of the GEM 2020 Global Report

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

ICSB warmly congratulates and is proud to announce the launch of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) 2020 Global Report.

 

GEM has been keeping its finger on the pulse of the state of entrepreneurship since 1999, both in terms of the state of the entrepreneurial mindset, motivations, activities, and ambition, and the national framework conditions required to allow entrepreneurship to flourish in an economy. In this, GEM’s “coming of age” 21st year, entrepreneurship is in the spotlight as never before, with multiple governments increasingly focused on putting into place policy frameworks and mechanisms to drive and promote entrepreneurship.

Fifty economies participated in the GEM 2019 Adult Population Survey (APS), including 11 from the Middle East & Africa, eight from Asia & Pacific, eight from Latin America & Caribbean, and 23 from Europe & North America. Five of these economies are classified as low-income level, 12 as middle-income and the rest as high-income. Over 150,000 individuals participated in extended interviews as part of the GEM research in 2019. This is the solid evidence base for the GEM findings that are presented in this report.

An ICSB delegation led by Drs. Alex DeNoble, Jeffrey Alves, and Ayman El Tarabishy attended the launch of the GEM Global Report launch.

We are also looking forward to seeing GEM teams at ICSB World Congress in Paris, July 7-10, 2020.
