Summary:

A few years back, a report from the Kauffman Foundation shook up the common perception that there were hordes of young tech geeks—all looking to build the next Google or Facebook—driving an entrepreneurial revolution.

During roughly that same time period, startups with 1-4 employees have created more than 1 million jobs per year while those with 5 – 9 employees have created 500,000 per year. The figures come from the latest Business Dynamics Statistics report from the Kauffman Foundation.
