Startups and small businesses are an essential part of ANY country’s economy — despite the growth of numerous multi-billion dollar corporations. We have acknowledged this in many posts (see, for example, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
The Payroll Blog has prepared an excellent infographic on the current state of startups in the United States:
“Startups often represent excitement in the small business world, because of their ability to innovate with great new ideas. Some even grow into giants that become household names and many have created products and services that make our lives easier. Despite a major bump in the road with the recent recession, startups have still grown by 49 percent since 1982. And in their first year, new startups create an average of three million jobs. Obviously, these small businesses serve an important function in our economy. Take a look at our infographic below and find out everything you could want to know about the world of startups, from the best places to launch them to their survival rates and more!”
As we have written about several times before (see 1, 2, 3), small businesses have numerous resource opportunities that they need to know about and utilize.
