There’s good news for the nation’s startup activity in 2016, according to the 2016 Kauffman Index of Startup Activity – a key economic indicator that shows new business creation, market opportunity and startup density in regions across the United States. Two years after reaching its lowest point in almost 20 years, the nation’s startup activity has rebounded, increasing for the second year in a row.
What’s happened to cause this positive change? On Aug. 31 join Jason Wiens, Kauffman Foundation policy director, and Arnobio Morelix, senior research analyst, for a webinar as they highlight key findings and explain the implications of the latest data on firm creation, such as:
- The increase in “opportunity entrepreneurship”
- Gender differences in startup activity
- Hiring and startup’s role in job creation
- How to view current startup activity in light of long-term trends
- State and metro startup economies
