Each year GEM countries use the data collected to compile national reports describing the entrepreneurial ecosystem and allowing for cross-country comparisons. Many provide recommendations as to what is both hindering and enhancing entrepreneurial activities and what could be done by policy makers to improve the levels of entrepreneurial activities and stimulate SMME development which is vital for the well-being and prosperity of a country. This report, which is the second in the series, puts together a composite of policy briefs from a select number of countries highlighting an initiative in that country which has had a dramatic effect of improving entrepreneurship. It is hoped that other countries could learn from these initiatives, not necessarily by copying them but adapting them to their own environment.
