GEM is a trusted resource on entrepreneurship for key international organisations like the United Nations, World Economic Forum, World Bank, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), European Commission, etc. providing custom datasets, special reports and expert opinion.
As part of a global consortium we gather annual primary data for the Bulgarian entrepreneurship ecosystem, perform benchmark analysis across countries and regions and identify factors that foster entrepreneurship. We produce and communicate recommendations to stakeholders in order to improve the conditions for living and doing business in Bulgaria.
Our mission is to make Bulgaria attractive for living and doing business through social and economic transformation within a balanced entrepreneurship ecosystem. As part of this mission, we have initiated a number of projects in the fields of entrepreneurship and education.
