On the RiseAmerican business ingenuity is impressive. As we move from the era of big business to more localized endeavors, small businesses are taking on a bigger role in shaping tomorrow’s world of work. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, more Americans are becoming self-employed entrepreneurs, freelancers, contractors and microbusiness owners.
Here are some more of their impressive stats:
Typically 7% of Americans are self-employed. Ed Potter, President of the Employment Policy Foundation, predicts this rate could grow to as high as 10% in the next few years.
Small businesses are environmentally friendly. They are typically an active part of their local community and they also provide innovation.
Economic research suggests that small businesses innovate at twice the rate of large businesses, which usually results in environmentally friendly products and technologies.
Working with small businesses and organizations we appreciate the creativity and commitment they bring to the communities they service. To learn more small business facts, visit U.S. Small Business Administration .
