StartupSmart - Australia second only to US in start-up stakes
24th Sep 12
New research by the Australia Centre for Entrepreneurship has found that one in ten Australians was involved in starting and running new businesses in 2011. This start-up rate was higher than other developed countries apart from the United States, painting a healthy image of Australia’s economy. This entrepreneurship is expected to create jobs in the consumer-oriented or business services sectors, with a third of the early stage entrepreneurs expecting to create over five new jobs within the coming five years.
