Inspiring practices in inclusive entrepreneurship policy in Hungary

The Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is entering the second year of a three-year programme of co-operation with the European Commission (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion) that monitors and reports on the state, development and impact of entrepreneurial activity in Europe and related public policies and actions.  It focuses on how public policy can support job creation through self-employment and business start-up.  

Within the framework of this multiannual programme, the Budapest Institute was commissioned by the OECD to prepare a case study on a national or local scheme that promotes or supports self-employment and entrepreneurship activities for groups that are disadvantaged or under-represented in entrepreneurship (e.g. women, youth, seniors, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, unemployed). The Hungarian case study in 2013 presented the MEXX programme of SEED Foundation, and the 2014 study features the Snétberger Music Talent Centre. Each year until the end of the project, Budapest Institute will present a new best practice from Hungary.

A summary of MEXX programme is available in the OECD report called Missing Entrepreneurs 2014, while a summary of the Snétberger programme is available in the new OECD publication Missing Entrepreneurs 2015.
