Executive summary

Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs are important sources of innovation, growth and employment. The recent crisis, characterised by tighter credit restrictions, has arguably hampered new start-ups and impeded growth in existing start-ups as well as their ability to survive in tough market conditions. The significant rise in business closures in recent years, especially of micro and small enterprises, bears witness to these difficult conditions and highlights the need for robust and comparable statistics on entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship at a Glance contains a wide range of internationally comparable measures of entrepreneurship designed to meet this need; in particular, some 20 indicators of entrepreneurial performance are presented for around 30 countries.
