Entrepreneurial Pathway

In 2020, the U.S. saw what LinkedIn hails as an “entrepreneurial renaissance.” According to LinkedIn News editor Jordyn Dahl, high unemployment has encouraged would-be business owners finally to pursue their great ideas, and more people are making the shift from “employee” to “entrepreneur.” As of mid-November 2020, the number of new business applications had skyrocketed—up 38 percent year-over-year, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.
