Inclusive Business Creation

Good Practice Compendium

image of Inclusive Business Creation

This compendium contains 20 case studies of public programmes in European countries that are successfully supporting business creation by people from disadvantaged and under-represented groups in entrepreneurship. The populations targeted by these programmes include youth, women, seniors, the unemployed, immigrants, ethnic minorities and people with disabilities. Each programme description details the programme’s activities and approach, assesses the challenges faced in development and implementation, and offers tips for successful transfer to other contexts.

 

Public policy actions at national, regional and local levels can make an important contribution to economic growth and social inclusion by promoting business creation and self-employment by people who otherwise could remain outside of the mainstream of entrepreneurship. This compendium demonstrates that workable approaches exist and can help policy makers learn from each other's experiences to achieve widespread results.

Executive summary

Nearly one decade after the onset of the economic crisis in 2007, job creation continues to be a political priority across the European Union. With nearly 23 million unemployed people in the second quarter of 2015 and another 91 million who were inactive in the labour market, everybody is asking how can we create jobs?.
