According to a new GEM Report from Babson College and Baruch College, the answer is “established women business owners.”
The yearly GEM report provides a comprehensive look at entrepreneurship on a global level over time (15 years thus far.) Other highlights from the report include:
Nearly 13 percent of the U.S. population (an estimated 25 million Americans) was in the process of starting or running a new business—the highest entrepreneurship rate reported among 25 developed economies surveyed from North America, Europe, and Asia.
An estimated 7.7 million of these entrepreneurs projected employing five or more people in the next five years.
Most U.S. entrepreneurs start businesses to pursue an opportunity. Still, rates of starting businesses out of necessity are persistently higher than before the 2008 recession.
