This paper presents empirical evidence that different types of entrepreneurship have varied effects across economies based on a cross-sectional analysis of the relationship between entrepreneurship and economic growth.

Entrepreneurs contribute to innovation and, more broadly, to competition and economic dynamism. In particular, the paper reveals data showing that opportunity-driven entrepreneurship is positively related to growth in developing economies where manufacturing is significant.
