Intelligence: The Rare Breed of Entrepreneurs
Microsoft founder Bill Gates may seem like a typical entrepreneur:
the son of an attorney and philanthropist who dropped out of
college and began his first company at age 21.
However, the newest research on the background of entrepreneurs
shows that Gates' demographic puts him in the minority. According
to a study by the Kauffman Foundation, most entrepreneurs in the
United States today tend to be middle-aged, well-educated, adn come
from lower- or middle-class backgrounds.
