The 2021 edition report of the "Missing Entrepreneurs 2021" has been published

Panteia is pleased to announce that the 2021 edition report of the “Missing Entrepreneurs 2021” has been recently published on November 29th, 2021, and the launch event was conducted on November 30th, 2021, which presented the main findings of the report. The report is prepared by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the European Commission (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities.) The Missing Entrepreneurs 2021 is the sixth edition in a series of biennial reports which examine how public policies can overcome obstacles to start-ups and self-employment by people from disadvantaged or under-represented groups in entrepreneurship. It shows that there are substantial untapped opportunities for entrepreneurship in populations such as women, youth, the unemployed, and immigrants and highlights the need for more differentiated government entrepreneurship policies that respond to the specific barriers they face. Panteia is providing the information on the Netherlands in the project.

The Missing Entrepreneurs 2021 report provides an overview of the scope of inclusive entrepreneurship policy, which seeks to give everyone an equal opportunity of creating a successful and sustainable business, regardless of their gender, age, place of birth, work status or other personal characteristics. The sixth edition of this series presents updated indicators on entrepreneurship activities, which:     

  • are benchmarked across countries and population groups;    
  • addresses existing challenges;    
  • provides concrete policy examples and lessons learned - notably recent developments in inclusive entrepreneurship and the important role inclusive entrepreneurship policy has in the COVID-19 recovery.

Two thematic policy chapters discuss current policy issues and present the range of policy actions currently used in EU and OECD countries.
