Benchmarking for women entrepreneurship development in latvia
MetadataShow full item record
The understanding of entrepreneurship has developed significantly over the last two decades with many recognised researchers promoting the idea that business environment, though vital for entrepreneurship, provides only a part of factors influencing the formation and emergence of a new entrepreneur. The goal of the research is to approximate the application of different indicators used and available for measuring entrepreneurship in general and women entrepreneurship in particular. The authors analyse the current application of business environment indices, e.g. the Global Competitiveness Index and Doing Business Indicators and the data gathered within the national study on women entrepreneurship, and offer to integrate the Global Entrepreneurship Indicators into policy-making.
