orridor Business Journal: A new analysis by Amazon finds that Iowa leads the nation in the per-capita number of small and medium-sized businesses selling through the tech giant’s online platform, and that Iowa businesses are increasing their sales the fastest on average among Amazon stores. Iowa is home to nearly 10,000 small and medium-sized sellers on Amazon, earning it the top ranking for the most digital entrepreneurs per capita. That was followed by Delaware (with more than 3,000 sellers), California (over 100,000) and Wyoming (more than 1,000). Iowa sellers also reported the fastest year-over-year growth, at 57%, as shoppers increasingly shifted their purchases online amid the COVID-19 pandemic. That was followed by sellers in Washington (56% growth), Alabama (53%) and Virginia (50%).
