Entrepreneurs tend to locate in cities and industry clusters because networking often contributes to business success. But this is less true of women entrepreneurs: many locate closer to home. These patterns are important as they suggest that women-owned businesses do not enjoy the same benefits from networking that male-owned businesses do, and so suffer a comparative disadvantage in business development. In a new paper, using data from Dun and Bradstreet's Marketplace file, Professor Stuart Rosenthal of Syracuse University explains why.
The Honorable Katherine Baicker, Member, Council of Economic Advisers, will deliver a keynote address on solving health insurance problems for entrepreneurs. Lunch will be served.
