Olga Verkhovskaya and Dmitry Knatko presented the report “GEM Russia 2018-2019”
On June 4, GSOM SPbU researchers presented the full version of the national report “GEM Russia 2018-2019”. According to the experts, in 2018, the assessment of the availability of business opportunities in the regions where respondents live was increased by 5% and the assessment of the ease of starting a new business increased by 3%. Despite this, the majority of respondents believe that it is difficult to become a businessman in Russia.
“Among the reasons why people do not want to launch their own business is the fear of failure,” said the head of the GEM Russian team Olga Verkhovskaya on the presentation of the report.
