Entrepreneurship Ecosystems

An Entrepreneurship Ecosystem is an economic, social, and cultural environment comprising multiple stakeholders involved in or benefitting from concentrated activities related to entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship Ecosystems are the catalyst for innovation and economic growth through entrepreneurship. Governmental organisations can stimulate economic activity by creating the conditions for Entrepreneurship Ecosystems to flourish.

Entrepreneurship is reliant on accommodative policies and entrepreneurship-friendly regulations. These can range from passive support such as certain policies, visa regulations, tax breaks for entrepreneurs and investors, as well as regulatory frameworks. Public policy must be conducive to entrepreneurship and startups need to be enabled rather than hindered by the regulatory environment.
