The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is a global consortium that conducts research on 66 global economies, covering 82% of the world’s GDP and 71% of its population. GEM brings together over 400 researchers from across the globe and includes more than 100 institutions every year. The involvement of all these people and institutions makes GEM the largest study on entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial activities in the world.
GEM is the world's foremost study of entrepreneurship. GEM began in 1999 as a joint project between Babson College (USA) and London Business School (UK) with the aim of building understanding as to why some countries are more 'entrepreneurial' than others. Through a vast, centrally coordinated international data collection effort, GEM has provided high quality information on a comprehensive variety of indicators about entrepreneurship in 114 economies over 20 years. GEM is a trusted resource for organizations around the world to help inform decision-making to improve the quantity and quality of entrepreneurial activity. The 2020/21 GEM KSA National Report provides a comprehensive profile of the entrepreneurship in KSA. This includes measures of societal attitudes, self-perceptions, affiliations relative to entrepreneurship, and profiles of entrepreneurs.
