Bring the family and discover adventure and diversity in South Louisville! We think the Institute for Local Self Reliance does a great job summarizing this concept: Entrepreneurship fuels job creation. Across the country, the rate of new business formation has fallen sharply over the last 20 years, contributing to sluggish job growth and wage stagnation. "New businesses account for nearly all net new job creation," concludes a Kauffman Foundation research brief. (1) Cities that achieve higher rates of entrepreneurship and new business creation than the national average are better off. They generate more jobs, which in turn lifts wages. While cities may be tempted to focus only on tech startups, expanding opportunities for residents to launch businesses that meet community needs in retail, services, food production, and other sectors can have even greater impact.
