The Kauffman Foundation released an interesting report this month on the entrepreneurial activity in the United States. Apparently, entrepreneurial activity in 2010 was the highest since 1996. The link to the report is available here: [Link]. I found the interactive map and chart of entrepreneurial activity by state to be particularly interesting.
Nevada, Georgia, California, Louisiana, and Colorado were noted as having the highest level of entrepreneurial activity. Kudos to Mississippi, a perennial cellar dweller in so many other surveys, which had an entrepreneurial ranking near the top of the list. You can access the chart here to see how your state ranks: [Link].
As far as major metropolitan areas are concerned, Los Angeles, Houston, and Atlanta took home the top three spots for entrepreneurial activity.
