Global Entrepreneurship Monitor –Georgia


In 2014, the Caucasus School of Business with support of the GIZ Private Sector Development Programme South Caucasus became the Georgian National Team in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) consortium.

The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor is the world's lagest study of entrepreneurship. Since 1999, GEM has been collecting, analyzing and interpreting data on entrepreneurial activity, aspirations and attitudes of individuals in more than 100 countries across the world.


Through a vast, centrally coordinated, internationally executed data collection effort, GEM is able to provide high quality information, comprehensive reports and interesting stories, which greatly enhance the understanding of the entrepreneurial phenomenon - but it is more than that. It is also an ever-growing community of believers in the transformative benefits of entrepreneurship.

In each economy, GEM looks at two elements

• The entrepreneurial behaviour and attitudes of individuals
• The national context and how that impacts entrepreneurship

The information gained, carefully analysed by local GEM researchers, allows a deep understanding of the environment for entrepreneurship and provides valuable insights.

In 2014 Caucasus University has developed the first Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Report for Georgia. The document provides unique information and data that policy-makers and other decision-makers will not find elsewhere. The document at hand is the first GEM report that looks at Georgia specifically in large detail and explores the role of entrepreneurship in national economic growth, unveiling detailed national features and characteristics associated with entrepreneurial activity, hence providing unique insights into the economies worldwide.

Caucasus University believes that the continuous participation of Georgia in GEM activities, will allow the country to identify changes in entrepreneurial behaviour and to adjust policy formulation to the needs and trends of domestic entrepreneurial developments. Public discussions on those polices will increase awareness of entrepreneurship as one of main grounds for sustainable economic development and growth in Georgia.
