Entrepreneurship in Sweden is falling and the country now occupies a bottom position internationally. Despite measures and support packages initiated by the government, entrepreneurship fell from 8.3 percent in 2019 to 7.3 percent in 2020. 47 percent of new entrepreneurs believe that the government have had a sufficient response to the financial consequences of the pandemic. The corresponding figure for the established entrepreneurs is 40 percent. But crisis management seems to have come at the cost of reduced economic dynamism, shows this year’s national report of the world’s largest entrepreneurship survey Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, GEM.
