Data Dive: Indicators of Entrepreneurship

Tuesday, June 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm • Organized By Kauffman Foundation
Online Event


This spring, the Kauffman Foundation released updates to our entrepreneurship indicators, highlighting the latest entrepreneurial trends in both the New Employer Business series and the Kauffman Indicators of Early-Stage Entrepreneurship. The data has sparked conversations about the status of the economy and entrepreneurial activity this past year, particularly around what these trends mean for our cities and communities today.

Please join us as we continue these conversations and provide insight into the recent research in our upcoming webinar. Robert Fairlie, professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Jessica Looze, Director of Knowledge Creation and Research at the Kauffman Foundation, will be discussing key data highlights and how these indicators are important to informing our understanding of entrepreneurship. There will also be space for Q&A near the end of the webinar.
