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.

Policy support for entrepreneurship by ethnic minority groups,

Ethnic minority groups are very active in entrepreneurship in many EU countries. This chapter reports on the level of entrepreneurship activities by ethnic minority groups and some of the key characteristics of these businesses. It also presents the main barriers to business start-up for potential ethnic minority entrepreneurs and actions that policy makers can take to support ethnic minority groups in overcoming these barriers. Inspiring practices from across the EU are presented to illustrate these actions.
