Executive summary

Although the post-crisis recovery in entrepreneurialism remains mixed across countries - with enterprise creation rates at half their pre-crisis levels in the case of Finland, around one-fifth to one-third lower in the United States, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Italy, and higher in the United Kingdom, France, Sweden and the Netherlands - the most recent data (end of 2015 and beginning of 2016) provide tentative signs of a turning point, with trends in enterprise creation rates pointing upwards in most economies.
