THE EFFECT OF HUMAN AND FINANCIAL CAPITAL ON THE ENTREPRENEURIAL PROCESS: AN URBAN-RURAL COMPARISON OF ENTREPRENEURS IN INDIANA

Entrepreneurship is a crucial ingredient of economic growth and job creation. Small business start-ups are currently of great interest to many state and local governments including Indiana. With the growing need to stimulate small business development, it is necessary to understand the obstacles faced by entrepreneurs as they attempt to start a business.
