ENTREPRENEURS

CIVIC INNOVATORS

The Startup Ecosystem – New firm creation is at a fifty year low in the United States, due in part to the concentration of lending into established businesses and of investment capital into a few square miles of California and New York. Can small cities combine new tools and traditional institutions to buck the trend?
