The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has released a series of reports that has some interesting findings about entrepreneurship in the 13-state region it serves. On the one hand, the ARC-funded study finds there are marginally more high-growth companies in Appalachia compared to the rest of the country (1.7 percent in Appalachia in comparison to 1.5 percent in the country). On the other hand, there are slightly fewer stage 2 companies in the region compared to the rest of the country (15.3 percent in Appalachia compared to 15.6 percent in the country). Also, Appalachia lags behind the country when it comes to new businesses with just more than 26 percent of companies in the ARC region considered start-ups compared to nearly 31 percent in the rest of the country.
