Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) Survey is the largest annual study of entrepreneurial dynamics in the world. GEM was conceived in 1997. IIM-Bangalore had anchored the study in India in 2001 & 2002. Subsequently during 2006-08 Pearl School of Business, Gurgaon conducted GEM-India study; however, they could not published the National Report. After four years, i.e. in 2012, India participated again in the study to probe the nature and level of entrepreneurship among different strata of the economy, in India. The GEM-India Team (led by Dr. Sunil Shukla, Director-EDII), comprising EDII, Indian School of Business, Hyderabad and Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad published two reports, i.e., in 2013 & 2014.
On April 11, 2015, the new GEM India Consortium was formed and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed to this effect at EDII. The three Institutions that comprise the Consortium are; EDII, Ahmedabad, Centre for Entrepreneurship Development, Madhya Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute, Srinagar. EDII was once again designated as the lead Institute and the Dr. Sunil Shukla, as leader. A team of seven researchers has been constituted to take the onus of this task.
