Your business is key to a healthy, thriving economy

Small businesses account for

  • 99.7% of all employers in the U.S.
  • Nearly 50% of U.S. GDP comes from small businesses
  • Nearly 50% of all U.S. employees work for a small business

Despite the importance of small businesses to our economy, small businesses remain the least well-managed enterprises in the country. But it isn't for lack of trying. It's a knowledge and resources deficit.

  • Small business owners often know a lot about their product or service, but not much about business and financial management.
  • Small business owners are pressed for time as they often work in the business day-to-day and lack real management help.
  • There is a massive amount of information available for small business owners to sift through to find resources, but knowing where and how to start can be challenging.
