Innovation America Innovation America Accelerating the growth of the GLOBAL entrepreneurial innovation economy
Founded by Rich Bendis


Our recent report and technical appendix examines the state of business incentives for entrepreneurial firms. Funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, we analyze financial, fiscal, and services (such as incubators) incentives to determine if and how they are assisting small business entrepreneurs and innovation or technology entrepreneurs, including micro enterprises, inclusive/social enterprises, and second-stage/growth firms. The research highlights several insights for policy savvy economic developers, policy makers, and program administrators seeking to design and offer incentives to stimulate their entrepreneurship ecosystem and regional economic growth.
