Paths to Prosperity

The Monitor Group is an international consulting firm founded by Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

They have just released an interesting report on entrepreneurship based on research conducted in 22 countries.

The report explores the different dimensions, including attitudes and policies, to encourage entrepreneurship.

I recommend a read – and please do share your thoughts!  Some of the highlights….

  • An entrepreneurial mindset matters – recovering quickly from failure – recognising entrepreneurship as a legitimate career choice – valuing individualism
  • Incubators are less important than they are made out to be…(sorry if you have just invested in them)
  • Teaching entrepreneurial skills (from primary schools to universities) works

You cna get the full report here.
