Abstract

The development of metropolitan areas is likely to depend, among other things, on the development of their entrepreneurial communities. However, our understanding of entrepreneurial communities worldwide is limited. In the following note, we begin to fill this gap by providing data on the development of entrepreneurial communities around the globe. Moreover, we provide data on the diffusion of venture capital in the United States and Europe. We conclude this note with some recommendations for European policymakers.
