This Entrepreneurship Quiz Will Humble You


Take the Entrepreneurship QuizWhich location had the most startups per capita in the United States:  San Jose, California or Austin, Texas? 

Naaahhhh!  (Wrong answer buzzer sounded.) 

Neither is the right answer.

The question is part of an Entrepreneurship Quiz prepared by Dr. Scott Shane in connection with his new book, The Illusions of Entrepreneurship.  Dr. Shane is the A. Malachi Mixon III Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Case Western Reserve University. 

Back in the days when Small Business Trends was new, we did a quick email interview with Dr. Shane.  Now that he has this new book out, we’ll try to get him on the radio show or else do another Q&A article to find out more.

Meanwhile, go take the Entrepreneurship Quiz
