By Carleigh Lowe Monday, July 13, 2009

Businessweek.com has a very interesting article that discusses the results from a study that explores what makes entrepreneurs tick. Let us know why you were motivated to become an entrepreneur, we would love to hear from you!

Below is an excerpt:

The study, titled “The Anatomy of an Entrepreneur,” led by co-authors Vivek Wadhwa, Raj Aggarwal, Kristina "Z" Holly, and former BusinessWeek tech editor Alex Salkever is an attempt to get a feel for the background and motivation of American entrepreneurs, including their level of education, socioeconomic status, and work experience. The team set out to uncover what makes entrepreneurs across high-growth industries tick, surveying 549 successful business founders between August 2008 and March 2009. The study found they were 40 years old on average when they started their first companies. About 90% were well-educated and came from middle-class or upper-lower-class backgrounds.
