The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute in Washington, D.C., USA published the Global Entrepreneurship Index 2017
The 89 pages study gives inside on:
A composite indicator of the health of the entrepreneurship ecosystem in a given country based on the folowwing 14 areas: Opportunity Perception, Startup Skills, Risk Acceptance, Networking, Cultural Support, Opportunity Perception, Technology Absorption, Human Capital, Competition, Product Innovation, Process Innovation, High Growth, Internationalization and Risk Capital.
The study includes information on how the areas were measured and gives some advise for different stakeholders: Entrepreneurs, large companies and the politics.
The Winner unfortunately is NOT Germany (on Rank 15) but the Unites States (a not too big surprise).
Especially this important areas shows lacks in the Germany’s Entrepreneur Ecosystem
- Entrepreneurial attitudes (societies’ attitudes toward entrepreneurship)
- Entrepreneurial abilities (entrepreneurs’characteristics and those of their businesses)
- Entrepreneurial aspiration (reflects the quality aspects of startups and new businesses)
Most room for improvement (compared to competing countries) is in NETWORKING!
An important reason why we co-founded and still support the: European Workshop on Software Ecosystems www.ewseco.org and the International Association for SAP Partners www.ia4sp.org
