In 2014, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) research consortium
measured the entrepreneurial activity of individuals in 70 economies, making it the world’s most authoritative comparative study of entrepreneurial activity in the general adult population. In 2014, 10,750 adults aged 16 to 80 participated in the GEM UK survey. This monitoring report compares Global
Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) measures of entrepreneurial attitudes, activity and aspirations in the UK, France, Germany and the United States, and the four home nations of the UK. It also examines business registration activity by business owner managers and the anticipated and actual funding sources for individuals starting a business in the UK. The 2014 report shows that most UK
entrepreneurship measures remain above the longer term trend. For comparative indicators the UK typically lags the US but outperforms other innovation-led economies including France and Germany.
