With this sixth edition addressing the theme of Entrepreneurial Talent and Global Competitiveness, GTCI aims to advance the current debate around entrepreneurial talent, providing practical tools and approaches to leverage the full potential of individuals and teams as an engine and a basis for innovation, growth, and ultimately competitiveness. One of the key working assumptions on which this report is based is that entrepreneurial talent cannot be reduced to some innate quality found in successful business founders and leaders. It should rather be regarded as an input to growth, innovation, and employment creation that can be measured and nurtured. There are conditions underwhich entrepreneurial talent can thrive and be stimulated. There are others under which it will be stifled, to remain an untapped or wasted resource. Multiple examples exist around the world of successful ways to generate, grow, attract and retain entrepreneurial talent, from entrepreneurs, from employers and from governments. Such examples deserve due consideration, as well as the ways in which they can be adapted to specific local contexts.
The report, which covers 125 economies and 114 cities, is based on research conducted by INSEAD (led by Bruno Lanvin and Professor Felipe Monteiro) in partnership with The Adecco Group and Tata Communications
The Singapore launch event provides the region a unique opportunity to debate on how digitalization, algorithms and robotics are changing the work and business scene in Asia Pacific, and the path that Asia should pursue through the inevitable global upheavals so as to ensure future prosperity for its businesses and its peoples.
