About a year ago, a great Wall Street Journal piece came out covering “what college can teach an aspiring entrepreneur.” That article also presented some statistics we at Kauffman helped assemble, including a timeline of the evolution of entrepreneurship on college campuses.
This has been an important topic to Kauffman, especially as the Foundation ran in the past the Kauffman Campuses Initiative. While that initiative is now concluded, we have continued to follow closely the topic of entrepreneurship among young people – especially millennials, a generation set to become biggest generational cohort in the U.S.
Below you will find some measures showing the striking rise of entrepreneurship in universities across the country, as well as a timeline covering the evolution of entrepreneurship on college campuses.
This timeline ends in 2013, the year Kauffman concluded the Kauffman Campuses Initiative. If we do another timeline, what do you think we should include for 2014 and 2015?
