The study described in this report combines two unique datasets, the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index data, which ranks the economic competitiveness of 144 economies, and Global Entrepreneurship Monitor’s assessment of entrepreneurial activity across 70 economies. Using five years of data from both sets, the study analyses a sample of 44 economies by first examining three aspects of entrepreneurial activity, then grouping economies into five types of entrepreneurial clusters, and finally developing a deeper understanding of each type of cluster. Lastly, the study delves into what policymaking best benefits the unique characteristics of different economies.
