Study on Entrepreneurship - GEM Angola 2016/2017

Date of Publication: November 2017

The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) project is currently the largest study about entrepreneurship in the world. GEM aims to evaluate the entrepreneurial activity, attitudes and aspirations as well as the conditions that favour or block entrepreneurship in the participating countries.

The first GEM study took place in 1999, as a joint initiative between Babson College (USA) and the London Business School (UK), including the participation of 10 countries. In 2005, these two organizations transferred GEMís intellectual capital to the Global Entrepreneurship Research Association (GERA) Ė a non-profit organization managed by representatives from national teams in the two founding organizations and the organizations sponsoring the initiative. 

The GEM Angola 2016/2017 study comprised an international benchmarking exercise, that allowed a comparison of the level of entrepreneurship in Angola with different types of economy grouped according to their geographical location and level of development.

The most recent edition of the GEM study includes the participation of 64 countries.
