Prof Alex Antonites, of the Department of Business Management in UP's Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences, has been selected to participate as one of the national experts in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) South Africa report 2016.
 
The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is a not-for-profit academic research consortium which aims to contribute toward global economic development through entrepreneurship. To achieve this, GEM seeks to increase worldwide knowledge about entrepreneurship by conducting and disseminating world-class research that uncovers and measures factors impacting on the level of entrepreneurial activity among countries, identifies policies that may enhance entrepreneurial activity, and increases the influence of education in supporting successful entrepreneurship. GEM is the largest single study of entrepreneurial activity in the world. Started as a partnership between London Business School and Babson College, it was initiated in 1999 with 10 countries, and has expanded to include over 100 economies by 2014. South Africa has been involved with GEM since 2001.
