Global Small Business Success: What Does It Take?

Small businesses are the backbone of our state and national economy.

According to the Small Business Administration, small business represents 99.7 percent of all employers, employ half of all private sector employees and pay 44.3 percent of total U.S. private payroll. Nearly 40 percent of these small businesses are in the technology fields and 53 percent of them are home-based.

Clearly, national and state policy-makers should be listening to what small business wants and needs to succeed in the global economy.

What do we need to push forward?

Read the opinion piece here but I think we need a lot more than this.
