Strength in Numbers: The Power of Small Business

By | source: May 20th, 2012

If you’re living in the Austin area, it’s pretty hard to ignore the influence and strong presence of small, local businesses. It seems that most streets in Austin have at least a few clothing stores, restaurants, or music shops that are unique and entirely their own.

Small businesses obviously aren’t a new development and they’re prevalent all across the U.S., but after looking at today’s infographic I was surprised to learn just how prevalent (and influential) small businesses today are.

Some of the most interesting information I found was the fact that 20 million Americans are employed by businesses with less than 20 employees; that’s quite a few people.

For more information on the large presence of small businesses today refer to the infographic below. [Via]
