"Rural areas are surprisingly entrepreneurial"
"The United States’ continuing economic dominance is perhaps most attributable to the very smallest elements of its economy: its entrepreneurial start-ups. Nearly 700,000 new job-creating businesses open each year. That’s almost 2,000 every day, each helping to create new market niches in the global economy.
"Most people mistakenly believe these pioneering establishments occur overwhelmingly in metropolitan areas, such as in the now-mythic start-up culture of Silicon Valley.
"Yet, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, it is in fact nonmetropolitan counties that have higher rates of self-employed business proprietors than their metropolitan counterparts."
