GEM Scotland is an important, if often worrying, analysis of Scotland’s entrepreneurial position in the world. In entrepreneurial terms, we didn’t make it to the World Cup... In fact the picture is worse than that. Opportunity perception (lower), perceived lack of funding and fear of debt all played their parts in lowering our overall entrepreneurial activity rates over a long-term trend. My fear for Scotland - unless we in the public, private and third sectors work together to grow our economy - is of a major social and economic reversal of fortune. Scotland faces a triple economic tsunami – reduced government spending, declining entrepreneurial activity and markedly increased unemployment - particularly in the NEET category; an absolute abomination.
