About GEN Research

GEN Research


GEN Research drives knowledge creation efforts within GEN that translate research into evidenced based policies and programs to create healthier entrepreneurial ecosystems and higher impact entrepreneurial support organizations.  

GEN Research is informed by knowledge partners, advisors, and GEN’s Global Entrepreneurship Research Network (GERN) established in 2013 with the Kauffman Foundation to better understand and inform new and young firm formation and the factors and environments that enable them to succeed. Through GEN’s knowledge portal – GEN Atlas - GEN Research collects and shares insights from its communities around the world about programs and policies that remove barriers to entrepreneurship, welcome communities left behind, and increase rates of new firm formation within all economies.
