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 from unemployment,

One route to entering the labour market from unemployment is through business creation. However, unemployed people face many barriers to self-employment, including less access to finance for business start-up and depreciating skills and networks. This chapter presents the common public policy approaches used in the EU to support unemployed people in creating businesses, including information, financial support before and after start-up, the use of role models, training, coaching and mentoring and business consultancy.
