The goal is to develop entrepreneurs who open successful businesses.
In 2017, there were 93,124 jobs in the entrepreneurship occupational group in the Inland Empire/Desert region. However, only 9% or 8,175 of these jobs are classified as self-employed.
This occupational group is projecting to increase employment by 7% in the region through 2022. Employers will need to hire 51,203 more workers (or 4,167 for self-employed) during the same timeframe to backfill jobs that workers are permanently vacating (includes retirements). Tables 1 & 2 in the Appendix of LMI displays job growth, wages, education, training, and work experience required for this occupational group.
