The Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE) at California State University, San Bernardino is holding an event to release the findings of the second annual Inland Empire State of Entrepreneurship Report. The event will take place on March 30 at TopGolf in Ontario and an array of refreshments will be provided along with an overview of the report.
IECE’s goal in producing the State of Entrepreneurship report is to continue to provide current data on the trends in startup activity for the region and bring the voice of local entrepreneurs to those who need to hear it most – local and state policymakers, community organizations, lenders, and other resource providers. The Voice of the Entrepreneur survey sends powerful feedback on the challenges that entrepreneurs and business owners of the Inland Southern California region face. The survey is drawn from more than 10,000 entrepreneurs and business owners representing diverse industries.
“Entrepreneurship is vital for the economic success of the Inland Empire,” said Mike Stull, Director of the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship. “The area is lacking in professional career opportunities in the higher income ranges seen more prevalently in our neighbors to the South and West in San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles Counties.”
Stull continued “Opening one’s own business is a way that residents of this region can reach the higher-income levels and autonomy that upper-level professional careers offer. Achieving an overall higher average income in the region would have positive affects in job creation and economic opportunity.”
