With over 28 million small businesses in the U.S., one could argue they are the backbone of the U.S. economy. Small businesses outnumber corporations 1162 to 1, and account for 60-80 percent of all new jobs. This week is a great opportunity to celebrate and recognize the contributions that small businesses, and the people that run them, make to our society.
Celebrate National Small Business Week with us this week! We’ve been posting small business-related facts over on Facebook and Twitter all month, so stay tuned for more and tell us how you’ve been celebrating!
