2016 Global Entrepreneurship Index rankings
Enterprise is a crucial engine of economic growth. Without enterprise and entrepreneurs, there would be little innovation, little productivity growth, and few new jobs.
Entrepreneurial success does not take place in a vacuum. Entrepreneurs exist in the context of their particular geography – be that their local, national, or even supranational economy and society.
This mix of attitudes, resources, and infrastructure is known as the entrepreneurship ‘ecosystem’.
The Global Entrepreneurship Index is an annual index that measures the health of the entrepreneurship ecosystems in each of 132 countries. It then ranks the performance of these against each other. This provides a picture of how each country performs in both the domestic and international context.
