We investigate the determinants of start-up financing in 54 countries, using the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) surveys for years 2001-2006. We find that financial liberalisation increases the total financial size of the individual start-up entrepreneurial project both via the increased use of external and of own funds. In addition, the volume of start-up finance responds positively to international capital inflows as represented by loans from non-resident banks and remittances, and negatively to the volume of offshore deposits. The positive impact of remittances on total volume of start-up financing is via own finance of the entrepreneur.
