Startup activity in America: A look at startup policy and the Kauffman Index

Editor’s note: This post was republished with permission from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation’s Growthology blog.


Recently, Jason Wiens, policy director for the Kauffman Foundation, and I presented a webinar on startup activity in America joined by federal and state policymakers from across the nation. We discussed both trends on the newly released Kauffman Index of Startup Activity and what policy can do for entrepreneurship in the U.S.

Below is the slide deck from the presentation, as well as additional resources.
