In 2004 small companies employed about half of the private-sector work force and generated about half of the nonfarm private gross domestic product in the U.S., according to the Small Business Administration.
A study released by the Kauffman Foundation earlier this month, titled “The Anatomy of an Entrepreneur,” led by co-authors Vivek Wadhwa, Raj Aggarwal, Krisztina “Z” Holly, and former BusinessWeek tech editor Alex Salkever aims to discover who American entrepreneurs are and what makes them tick.
