Dr Mike Herrington, director of the UCT Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) at the Graduate School of Business, has been appointed to the board of the most authoritative and comprehensive study on entrepreneurship in the world today, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM). The CIE has been conducting the South African leg of the GEM study - the country's largest on entrepreneurship - since 2001. The research forms part of a global research body that included 43 countries by 2008. "The outcomes influence many government policies in a number of countries, and our South African GEM report is now being used by parts of government to formulate small, medium and micro-enterprise policy in our country," says Herrington.
