A fascinating article reports that the US is now ranked sixth in terms of entrepreneurial performance. Basically, due to the lousy economy, people’s view of entrepreneurship, and a host of other factors, the US is apparently behind Denmark and Canada.
I’m not sure how seriously to take the findings or conclusions of the report but it’s worth noting. If the US loses it’s edge for creating new businesses, we are really in trouble. Change comes not from soulless, worthless big businesses but from small ones with a vision. If you trace almost any major innovation, you’ll see there was an entrepreneur behind it.
It’s so important not to let the recession crush our entrepreneurial spirit. Keep fighting my friends.
