Culture: Reasons for starting a business

Across countries, having a suitable business idea and securing the necessary finance are generally cited as the two most important considerations for starting-up, or taking over, a business. Having a role model is very important in Brazil, Italy, Korea, China and Portugal, while less than 50% of individuals consider it relevant in Nordic countries and in the Russian Federation. Job--dissatisfaction is an important element but typically the least significant consideration cited by respondents.
