Why is it important?

There is still no known study that differentiates the determinants of entrepreneurship in the industry from those in the services sector. The study presented here attempts to fill this gap, adopting a novel approach that makes it possible to determine the macroeconomic factors that contribute most to entrepreneurial activity, and paying particular attention to sectoral differentiation, i.e. the secondary (industry) and tertiary (services) sectors.

Perspectives

This relatively narrow focus provides the desirable (and necessary) studies on sustainable entrepreneurship with a plausible reason to consider this sectoral distinction. Therefore, policymakers should reflect deeply on refurbishing the national strategy for entrepreneurship for the different sectors: primary sector, secondary sector, and tertiary sector of the economy.
