Startup Acts: An Emerging Instrument to Foster the Development of Innovative High-Growth Firms
ACP countries are faced with high unemployment, political instability, and other well-documented development challenges that demand new solutions to inclusive economic growth. Governments, as a result, have increasingly begun to focus on entrepreneurship, and particularly on Start-ups, as a mean of creating quality jobs, boosting the wider economy’s productivity and growth, and delivering market-based innovations to development challenges. Targetted Start-up legislations (Startup Acts) appear as an interesting tool for fostering entrepreneurship and enabling the development of new firms with high growth potential, through the granting of targeted incentives (tax, subsidies, procurement, etc).
