Abstract: Building on the Ács-Szerb Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index (GEDI) methodology this paper aims to show the public policy applicability of GEDI. GEDI is a complex measure of entrepreneurship involving three sub-indices, 14 pillars and 28 variables. By answering four research questions we present Hungary’s entrepreneurial profile, show the change of the entrepreneurship over the 2006-2010 time period, and identify the strengths and the weaknesses. Hungary is compared to three important country groups. GEDI is a useful tool for policy-oriented analysis. Unlike other research projects that provide rather general and uniform policy suggestions, GEDI offers individual country level, tailor-made policy recommendations. Based on the principle of the weakest link, we present an optimal policy mix for Hungary involving the eight weakest performing pillars to improve Hungary’s GEDI score.
