Essay about entrepreneurship

The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor is the world’s foremost study of entrepreneurship.

Through a vast, centrally coordinated, internationally executed data collection effort, GEM is able to provide high quality information, comprehensive reports and interesting stories, which greatly enhance the understanding of the entrepreneurial phenomenon — but it is more than that. It is also an ever-growing community of believers in the transformative benefits of entrepreneurship.

GEM is a trusted resource on entrepreneurship for key international organisations like the United Nations, World Economic Forum, World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), providing custom datasets, special reports and expert opinion.

These important bodies leverage GEM’s rich data, tried-and-tested methodology and network of local experts to promote evidence-based policies towards entrepreneurship around the world.

In numbers, GEM is:

  • 18 years of data
  • 200,000+ interviews a year
  • 100+ economies
  • 500+ specialists in entrepreneurship research
  • 300+ academic and research institutions
  • 200+ funding institutions

In each economy, GEM looks at two elements:

  • The entrepreneurial behaviour and attitudes of individuals
  • The national context and how that impacts entrepreneurship

The information gained, carefully analysed by local GEM researchers, allows a deep understanding of the environment for entrepreneurship and provides valuable insights.

GEM began in 1999 as a joint project between Babson College (USA) and London Business School (UK). The aim was to consider why some countries are more ‘entrepreneurial’ than others. 18 years on, GEM is the richest resource of information on the subject, publishing a range of global, national and ‘special topic’ reports on an annual basis.

«I chose WIU initially because it was close to home and I wanted to stay close to my family. WIU really has a well-rounded curriculum, and the required classes in business basics really helped me, and I also enjoyed getting to know my professors on a personal basis.»

If I had the opportunity to go back and do those 4 years over again at WIU, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

I chose #WIU for the great education at an affordable price, and stayed because of the amazing opportunities and people that the school and community has to offer!
