Wonder what it takes to be successful as a startup? Here, business experts share the traits of top entrepreneurs.
Fashion yourself an entrepreneur? Join the club. A recent report from the Kauffman Foundation, which studies entrepreneurial activity, shows that new business creation in the U.S. in 2015 had the largest increase of any year of the past two decades.
And, the rise in entrepreneurship is more of a choice for new business owners, rather than a necessity caused by unemployment. Kansas City-based Kauffman tracks why people start businesses, and in 2014, about 80% were driven by opportunities as opposed to necessity. That’s back to about the level seen in the decade prior to the recession.
