Global Entrepreneurship Monitoring GEM began in 1999, since then the consortium has become the richest source of reliable information on the state of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ecosystems across the globe, publishing not only the GEM Global Report annually but also a range of national and special topic reports each year. GEM‘s study covers around 115 countries from every corner of the globe that have participated in GEM research.
Entrepreneurship is an essential driver of societal health and wealth. It is also a formidable engine of economic growth. It promotes the essential innovation required not only to exploit new opportunities, promote productivity, and create employment but to also address some of society’s greatest challenges, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or the economic shockwave created by the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic.
Since 2021 Vilnius University Business School is the coordinator of GEM in Lithuania. Business School team of researchers works in cooperation with „Enterprise Lithuania“ aiming to increase the science-based potential in the area of entrepreneurship.
