Entrepreneurs provide a key engine to propel growth in any healthy economy.
“They have the power to create jobs and drive growth – but first we need to give them the tools and the environment that will enable them to succeed,” said Maria Pinelli, of the global organization Ernst & Young, which created a barometer to gauge how well countries are fostering entrepreneurship.
The second edition of the Entrepreneurship Barometer surveyed 1500 entrepreneurs in the G20 countries asking them to measure the business climate in five areas:
- Access to funding
- Entrepreneurship culture
- Tax and regulation
- Education and training
- Coordinated support
Using these measures, the top countries for entrepreneurship were Australia, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and South Korea.
