image of The Missing Entrepreneurs 2014

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.

Italy: Starting a business (as part of Giovanisì strategy in Tuscany)

Description: In 2011, the Tuscany regional government set-up an integrated strategy to improve the transition into the labour market for youth. This strategy, Giovanisì, aims to address both short-term challenges in response to the recent economic crisis and longer-term development and demographic challenges. The strategy has four priority targets: students; postgraduates and researchers; youth not in employment, education and training (i.e. NEETs); and potential entrepreneurs. Giovanisì’s policies promoting entrepreneurship are organised as a programme called Starting a Business.
