“As a part of the 2015 State of Entrepreneurship report and February 11, 2015 event, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has chosen to highlight trends in two particular demographic groups as a means of exploring future potential directions for entrepreneurship in the United States in 2020 – Millennials and Baby Boomers. Millennials have been showing declining rates of entrepreneurship in many recent national studies, but are in other ways America’s most entrepreneurially-exposed generation. Baby Boomers have been prolific entrepreneurial contributors, but are entering traditional ages for retirement.”
