BUSINESS CREATION INITIATIVES

“Since the U.S. Small Business Administrations’s definition of small business is any business with fewer than 500 employees, small businesses vary widely in size and character. Many small businesses distinguish themselves by being innovative, flexible, and strongly tied to the community. Small businesses often require economic development finance tools and programs to grow and develop new products.Venture capital can be important for small businesses with high growth potential.” – IEDC
