Subject The article deals with the development of Russian entrepreneurship.
Objectives The aim is to identify the cause-effect relationships in the Russian entrepreneurship development.
Methods The study employs the systems approach, using the statistical, cluster and neural network analysis.
Results We show the urgency of the problem of business development in conditions of global decline in consumer demand. Our review of literary sources enabled to determine the essence of entrepreneurship, motives and conditions of doing business. The paper describes development stages of methodology for entrepreneurship formation. The cause and effect analysis based on the data of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development revealed the dynamics of establishing new enterprises in different countries. Russia has stable causal relationships and factors that ensure the development of entrepreneurship.
Conclusions Systematization of causal relationships of Russian entrepreneurship development is connected with the dynamics of setting up new enterprises, which is determined by the main motives and conditions for doing business. At the same time, the process of ensuring the sustainability of Russian entrepreneurship is associated with training of the population in necessary skills and knowledge to start a business, including by incorporating the training in creating and running small and medium-sized businesses in the vocational education system at the primary and secondary levels (basic school entrepreneurship and training).
