WELLESLEY, Mass. -- The United States exhibits among the highest rates of early stage entrepreneurial activity in the developed world (15.6%). In addition, a great majority of entrepreneurs in the United States were motivated by opportunity in 2018. These are among the findings of the 2018/2019 U.S. Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Report, produced by Babson College.
"Entrepreneurship can fill employment gaps in the economy and enable people to pursue the career they desire," said GEM U.S. Team Leader and Babson College Professor Julian Lange. "It is therefore imperative to equip people with the ability to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities and start businesses when they need or choose to do so."
