Policies for Inclusive Entrepreneurship

image of The Missing Entrepreneurs 2019

The Missing Entrepreneurs 2019 is the fifth edition in a series of biennial reports that examine how public policies at national, regional and local levels can support job creation, economic growth and social inclusion by overcoming obstacles to business start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented groups in entrepreneurship. It shows that there is substantial potential to combat unemployment and increase labour market participation by facilitating business creation in populations such as women, youth, the unemployed, and immigrants. However, the specific problems they face need to be recognised and addressed with effective and efficient policy measures. The 2019 edition contains two thematic policy chapters on the potential of digital entrepreneurship for making entrepreneurship more inclusive and increasing the scale-up potential of start-ups by entrepreneurs from disadvantaged groups. These thematic chapters discuss current policy issues and present the range of policy actions currently used in EU and OECD countries. The chapters also offer policy advice to national, regional and local policy makers. Finally, the report contains country profiles that highlight recent trends in entrepreneurship by women, youth, seniors and immigrants, key policy issues and recent policy actions in each of the 28 EU Member States.

Self-employment and entrepreneurship indicators for immigrants

This chapter presents self-employment indicators for immigrants in the European Union (EU), including self-employment rates and the proportion of self-employed immigrants with employees. Data are presented for immigrants born in another EU Member State and for those born outside of the EU and whenever possible, they are disaggregated by gender. Data are presented for EU Member States and selected Non-EU OECD countries to the extent possible. Averages are also presented for the EU overall.
