For decades, the United States has been experiencing a shocking decline in the number of new business startups…and it has got worse since the Great Recession. While new business formation in Silicon Valley, New York, and Boston is booming, entrepreneurship in most of the country—particularly rural regions—is declining. Things are even worse for women and people of color. This is of paramount importance to the United States because startups account for all new net job growth, champion innovation and strengthen our middle class.
From the perspective of an entrepreneur with more than fifty years of experience in diverse industries—from software, to real estate, to winemaking—author Craig Hall provides his expert evaluation on the challenges facing entrepreneurs today. After careful analysis defining the current environment for startups, Hall optimistically concludes with specific strategies for go-getters to successfully bridge the opportunity gap.
All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to nonprofits that are working to bridge the opportunity gap for entrepreneurs.
