Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report 2018: What Drives the Entrepreneurial Spirit?

It’s clear that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well around the world. We’ve learned through the Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report (AGER) over the last several years that the majority of people surveyed across the globe are open to owning their own business. But what motivates them, and which external environmental factors or internal attributes play a role, are questions that warrant further examination. That’s why we devoted AGER 2018 to What Drives the Entrepreneurial Spirit? We asked nearly 50,000 respondents in 44 countries about their attitudes and perceptions toward not just the concept of owning a business, but also toward the infrastructure in their country, the type of business they would start, how they assess their own capabilities for starting and running a business and what are the areas of support they seek most. The results bode well for entrepreneurship and highlight some intriguing insights and opportunities. Those under 35 years old continue to be the most positive toward entrepreneurship overall. There remains great opportunity to better support women who are more risk averse to starting their own businesses. And even though the world is becoming increasingly more digital, most respondents prefer to serve customers personally rather than digitally. Gaining a greater understanding of why people decide for or against owning a business is helpful for effectively fostering a world of entrepreneurs. This knowledge can help business and government leaders to make decisions and take actions that help more people start their own businesses and reach their full potential in this area. More entrepreneurs mean more opportunity, more economic growth and more prosperity for everyone.
