Entrepreneurship in the United States in 2014 involves high participation across each phase of the process, and it is accompanied by high levels of employee entrepreneurship activity. High impact is evident in the industry makeup, and in growth ambitions and innovativeness of American entrepreneurs, although low internationalization may represent missed opportunities. Positive attitudes about entrepreneurship are reflected in societal support for this activity, yet Americans show declining personal interactions with entrepreneurs over time. Analyses of women and of older and younger populations show the particular nature and needs of different groups.
