“Where America Stands: Entrepreneurship.”

The Competitiveness Index

Published February 2007

Building on the findings of the Competitiveness Index: Where America Stands, the Council is creating a series of deeply focused analyses of the high-impact drivers of U.S. innovation capacity and competitiveness. The first “deeper dive” in this suite of publications focuses on entrepreneurship – one of the most critical advantages for U.S. competitiveness.

While U.S. entrepreneurial performance continues to lead the world by almost any measure, this analysis demonstrates that other nations are catching up to the United States in a variety of ways – and highlights that the U.S. environment for entrepreneurial activity faces its own challenges and opportunities in the 21st century.
