Abstract: The needs for entrepreneurship policy are raised in line with the interests to identify the impact of entrepreneurship. The government should thus provide a conducive environment for the emergence of entrepreneurship. However, there is limited information about the implementation of entrepreneurship policy. It is necessary to conduct a preliminary research to describe the model of entrepreneurship policy in the case of Indonesia. The research uses the documentation-reading technique and categorisation of entrepreneurship policy programs based on content and level of analysis (micro, meso and macro level). The results show there are 12 government programs related to entrepreneurship, which aim to increase the number of entrepreneurs or new ventures. At the micro level, the policy is targeted to individual, which its contents are business skills, opportunity identification skill, and psychological endowment including self motivated. At the meso level, entrepreneur is defined as an organisation that creates an added value through entrepreneurial process with the content includes business incentives and administration burden. At the macro level, the impact of entrepreneurship influences jobs creation and start-up creation nationally in which the policy content includes entrepreneurship culture, entrepreneurship infrastructure, and education.
