From Silicon Prairie News: Entrepreneurship Index still shows bias to coasts, but Prairie catching up
Economists at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln published the results of their annual State Entrepreneurship Index last week. Though co-author Eric Thompson admitted the index reinforces a long-standing bias toward the east and west coasts, he said Prairie states like Iowa and Nebraska ranked well. “I have to confess that it does reinforce this stereotype, this predilection that some people have toward opportunity on the coasts,” he said. “But the index is also saying there’s plenty of opportunity and things going on here, too.” Iowa came in at 11th while Nebraska ranks 18th and Missouri 35th.
