CALABASAS, Calif., Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Guidant Financial, who has helped 11,000 entrepreneurs secure $3 billion in small business financing, has teamed up with MyCorporation, known for their award-winning customer service in the incorporation and LLC formation industry, for their latest infographic, "America's Main Street Small Business Owner."
"The small business industry is constantly in flux with regular ebbs and flows, but this year particularly we're seeing some exciting changes in areas such as minorities and women-owned businesses, as well as changes in the funding for those startups," said Deborah Sweeney, CEO of MyCorporation.
"America's Main Street Small Business Owner" is filled with must-know statistics for entrepreneurs who are curious about the changes the small business industry has been experiencing over the last year. For example, the majority of small business owners polled said the reason they started a business was due to their "dissatisfaction with the corporate lifestyle." Also revealed was a trend in the number of baby boomers pursuing entrepreneurship; people age 59 – 68 accounted for nearly a quarter of business owners. The infographic also covers gender demographics, funding trends and top industries.
"Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, and we've seen an influx in the number of people who chose 2015 as the year to go into business for themselves," said David Nilssen, Co-founder and CEO of Guidant Financial. "These year-over-year statistics allow us to identify shifts in small business ownership, like the baby boomer trend, so we can continue to provide access to the financing solutions these people need to make their business dreams a reality."
