Kate Maxwell and Sam Arbesman at the Kauffman Foundation are out with a new study the measures the mobility of founders of high growth companies (those on the Inc. 500 list).

The colors on the map are basically communities as defined by migration between the components:
This is an interesting study. I suggest at least checking out Richard Florida’s review of it over at Atlantic Cities.
