The entrepreneurial ability of population on Russia’s map

TERRA ECONOMICUS, , Vol. 19 (no. 1),

The article reports the results of an empirical study on the entrepreneurial ability of population as the factor of production in Russian federal districts and cities. The hypothesis of uneven distribution of entrepreneurial ability among the population has not been confirmed. A close relationship between the indicators of population size, publication ability and entrepreneurial ability has been identified. The authors analyze the list of the system-forming enterprises established by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and identify prospective key growth points in the publishing and innovation spheres. The term “concentration of entrepreneurial ability” is suggested to apply at the levels of society and organization. We created and explored the database of co-owners of Russian medium-sized companies and made conclusions about a relatively high concentration of entrepreneurial ability in manufacturing industries and in the knowledge-intensive sector of Russian cities.
