We present to you in preview: ‘Starting Up Romania’ – Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Diagnostic. This report, which will serve as an input to Romania’s envisioned first ever National Startup Ecosystem Strategy, will be officially launched in September 2022 and it outlines three essential elements to inform a comprehensive strategy in support of entrepreneurship in Romania.
First, it offers a big picture of entrepreneurship performance and ecosystem pillars at the national level, benchmarked against Romania’s peers. It will identify structural obstacles faced by entrepreneurs in order to define the key strategic objectives.
Second, the report provides new evidence about startups in Romania. The findings highlight the importance of understanding the types of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship activity in the national ecosystem, as well as the diversity of local ecosystems, to help refine the focus of policy.
Third, it assesses the existing policy mix and ecosystem enablers supporting entrepreneurship. It is important to know what resources and policy instruments already support entrepreneurship, either via public programs or ecosystem enablers, that may also allocate public resources.
