Hey, thanks for visiting.
Business is the lifeblood of our economy. There is nothing more important than having successful businesses in our region.
Successful businesses provide a significant portion of the state’s economic production and employ people who in turn raise families and spend money in the local economy.
In fact, according to the US Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy, in the third quarter of 2015, there were 240,123 small businesses that made up 96.6% of total Arkansas businesses. They employed 476,232 small business employees, which was 48.7% of all Arkansas employees. (Source: https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/advocacy/Arkansas.pdf)
But it is not all rosy. The same document that provides the stats refered to above, also mentions that while 1689 establishments started in Arkansas in the second quarter of 2014, 1812 closed their doors. In fact, the start-up rate has been steadily declining since 2006 so we need those start-ups to be successful.
