GEM Ireland

Ireland has been involved in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) since 2000. Paula Fitzsimons, together with co-author Dr. Colm O’Gorman, Professor of Entrepreneurship, DCU, has pioneered the development of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor within Ireland and is the National Coordinator for GEM Ireland. GEM is now recognised as the authority on entrepreneurship on the island of Ireland, endorsed by Ministers, consulted by Department officials and government development agencies, and its findings are sought and quoted by academic researchers, students of entrepreneurship, the financial institutions, sectoral bodies, a range of commercial interests and the media.

Enterprise Ireland, supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, sponsored the publication of the GEM report for Ireland 2016 which was published in August 2017.
