In its seventh year, the
2017 Global Entrepreneur Indicator (GEI) is a twice-yearly gauge of the near-term global economic outlook that delivers data on job creation, profit outlook and access to capital, among other key metrics. The U.S. sampling of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s September GEI—taken by 1,703 leading entrepreneurs—reveals the current state of the U.S. business landscape and the country’s economic health, among other statistics designed to identify economic trends, drive fiscal growth and strengthen communities.
