Summary/Abstract: In this study, we examine the impact of Internet usage in entrepreneurial process on the characteristics of entrepreneurs. We find that there are more “experienced” entrepreneurs (i.e. three or four previous startups) in the states that have a better internet startup and internet tax payment process. Our results also show that there are more “experienced” entrepreneurs (i.e. previous startup experience) in the states that have a better internet licensing process. Our results also show that there are more young and middle-aged entrepreneurs in the states with low internet scores when compared to the high-score states.
