Abstract

Small businesses are key drivers in the world's leading economies. Russia on the whole is lagging behind the developed world in terms of small businesses per capita. Entrepreneurship gradually took shape after the collapse of the Soviet Union despite structural challenges. A discourse on small business reform emerged during the presidency of Vladimir Putin. Legislation passed during his tenure illustrates the evolution of reform in specific areas that affect small business. Surveys show that perceived challenges for small businesses have also evolved. As central control recedes, regional and local authorities will ultimately be responsible for the future of small business reform in Russia.
