The Missing Entrepreneurs 2014 is the second edition in a series of annual reports that provide data and policy analysis on inclusive entrepreneurship, and on its barriers, by target social groups across the European Union. Inclusive entrepreneurship involves business start-ups and self-employment activities that contribute to economic growth and social inclusion - notably of youth, women, seniors, immigrants and the unemployed. In addition to inspiring policy practices, this issue contains special thematic chapters on entrepreneurship by ethnic minorities, pro-entrepreneurship welfare support systems and support for entrepreneurship from unemployment.

More specifically, the programme targets women with small children or those on maternity leave, pregnant women, and women older than 40 years. The scheme provided a comprehensive support package consisting of training, personal and peer-based mentoring and consultancy services. These components were designed to boost self-confidence and to support the development of communication and business skills.
