New paths of entrepreneurship

Commissioned by the Prime Minister’s Office, this study took a closer look at the measures for promoting micro and small entrepreneurship included in the Government’s package for strengthening entrepreneurship. As part of the Government’s analysis, assessment and research activities, the study was conducted together with Professor Erkko Autio and its aim was to provide information to support the further work of the Government’s key project; Boosting competitiveness by improving conditions for business and entrepreneurship.

The study recommends that the different administrative sectors, authorities and stakeholders implement in cooperation a strategic operational programme, launch trials for finding solutions for structural challenges and develop business advice and mentoring. In addition, the objectives for promoting entrepreneurship should be directed at developing entrepreneurs’ skills, competence and targets.
