A list of the most popular cities and place for entrepreneurs. Most lists like this are subjective, but this one is based on facts. The Kauffman Foundation recently issued a study showing which areas of the United States held the most amount of entrepreneurs per 100,000 people. Other websites and magazines may claim places like Austin, and Seattle are great for entrepreneurs, but that's not where the actually entrepreneurs are. This list also doesn't just include tech entrepreneurs, since let's face it, it takes guts to start any business or endeavor, not just one that includes computers. As it turns out, most entrepreneurs live around Los Angeles.
