The rate of new entrepreneurs in the United States has been steadily growing for two years, according to a new report.
The Kauffman startup index found that the rate of new entrepreneurs — or percent of non-business owning adults that started a business in a given month — has gone up from 2014, when 280 out of 100,000 adults became business owners, to 2016 when 330 out of 100,000 did. That translates to around 550,000 new entrepreneurs across the national, state and metro level every month.
Two years ago, the index saw its lowest rate of new entrepreneurs in 20 years. Today, the index is at its fifth highest level.
