1. Low level of development of the local market: insufficient local demand resulting from lower rural households’ income (income disparity = ~40% );
2. Difficult access to the final customer and users of services and products – lower population density; peripheral location
3. Lower qualifications and education level of rural people which limits the access to the qualified specialists (lower willingness to commute to rural areas for jobs);
4. Underdeveloped technical infrastructure compared to urban areas (roads, water supply and sewage system, energy and telecommunication networks - Internet), which implies higher costs for potential investors;
5. Hindered access to financial infrastructure in rural areas – difficulties to acquire capital for start ups
6. Hindered access to training and advise for rural entrepreneurship development (often inadequacy of entrepreneurship support)
7. Underdeveloped entrepreneurship culture (attitudes, perception, roles);
8. Low level of social capital (trust, cooperation).
9. Lack of more targeted policies differentiated between potential entrepreneurs and existing enterprises.
