Each year a book is produced to disseminate evidence base on entrepreneurship and self-employment activities and policies in Europe.
THE MISSING ENTREPRENEURS
This publication examines how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation by encouraging business start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented social groups in entrepreneurship. It shows that there is substantial potential to combat unemployment and stimulate social inclusion by promoting entrepreneurship in populations such as women, youth, seniors, the unemployed, and migrants, if the specific problems they face can be addressed and if entrepreneurship policies are opened up to all. The report details the barriers in the areas of institutions, entrepreneurial skills and entrepreneurial financing, provides guidance on how policies can intervene, and offers the inspiration of existing good practices from across the European Union.
