Inland Empire State of Entrepreneurship Report 2021

The five-year trend for the rate of new entrepreneurs shows that the Inland Empire region has a higher rate of new entrepreneurs than at the national level. However, the report reveals that the ‘Inland Empire lags overall in creating opportunity-based firms. Since 2018, the Inland Empire has been primarily driven by necessity entrepreneurship, as opportunity entrepreneurship has continuously declined from 2018 to 2020; in 2020-2021, this downward trend continued.’
