The 2013 Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report surveyed 26,000 people in 24 countries, led by GfK Research and the Entrepreneurship Centre at The University of Munich. This year, two-thirds of respondents had a positive attitude toward entrepreneurship and 46 percent consider their country entrepreneur-friendly. The study also shows we need to help people feel comfortable with the idea of owning their own business: "Fear of failure' is, by far, the No. 1 obstacle. It is our hope that this study will shape the way educators, politicians and small business leaders engage with the public to strengthen the global entrepreneurial spirit.
