A new article from CNN Money ranks Colorado as the 4th most Entrepreneurial state in the Union, following only Arizona, Texas and California. The rankings are taken from the Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurial Activity, which is published by the Kauffman Foundation.  According to the Kauffman Foundation, “The Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurial Activity measures the rate of business creation at the individual owner level. Presenting the percentage of the adult, non-business-owner population that starts a business each month.”

The Bard Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado Denver Business School is one of the contributors to Colorado’s ranking among the most entrepreneurial states in the Union. The Richard H. and Pamela S. Bard Center for Entrepreneurship was founded in 1996 to foster economic development in Denver and the Rocky Mountain region. The Bard Center for Entrepreneurship provides students with the education and resources to allow them to launch more successful ventures, and prepares them for success in any business venture
