With reference to the entrepreneurship policy delivery frameworks in the Districts of Altenburger Land (Thuringia) and Mittweida (Saxony), this report reviews the strengths and weaknesses of the current arrangements, identifies recommendations for adjustments to policy delivery methods, and details learning models of entrepreneurship policy delivery from North East England (UK), North Jutland (Denmark), and Ontario (Canada). In conclusion, several strategic issues are identified concerning the purposes of entrepreneurship policy, the development of a distinctive and more locally appropriate model of entrepreneurship and the appropriate institutional mechanisms and scales for entrepreneurship policy delivery.
