Driving growth by nurturing entrepreneurs and startups

The Kauffman Foundation and Brink Lindsey have just released some interesting new research. Brought to you by the same people who found that US job growth is driven almost entirely by startups.

Their study provides a roadmap for policymakers on how they can encourage and support entrepreneurs.
