Factors and Forms of Entrepreneurial Activity in the Context of Systemic Transformation (Russian and post-Soviet economies)

Priority areas of development: economics
2013
Department: Laboratory of Entrepreneurship Research
The project has been carried out as part of the HSE Program of Fundamental Studies.

The report examines the characteristics of the development of entrepreneurship in Russia and other transition countries.

The goal of the research is to reveal the structural characteristics of entrepreneurial activity and the impact socio-economic and institutional factors have on it.

The empirical basis of the research consists of annual surveys conducted within the GEM project (2008-2011), a database resulting from the nationwide FOM survey (2011) which was conducted according to a program developed by this Laboratory's research team, as well as material taken from semi-formal interviews with representatives of Russia's self-employed and entrepreneurs.

The report includes the following main findings: typological groupings within the transitional countries as well as different Russian regions were established according to the characteristic features of entrepreneurial activity; the conditions under which various indicators of entrepreneurial activity react to socio-economic changes within different types of locations were revealed; the extent and nature of the influence of environmental factors on entrepreneurial activity, in particular the prevalence of voluntary or involuntary entrepreneurship, have been shown; and types of entrepreneurial activity undertaken by various representative categories of Russia's self-employed and entrepreneurs, have been shown.  

Findings concerning the features and specifics of the Russian population's entrepreneurial activity can be taken into consideration when developing public policy on SMEs and entrepreneurship, on both the national and regional levels.
