Small businesses are an important engine for economic growth – creating jobs, investing in local communities and spurring positive change in neighborhoods across the US. Amid a fluid economy and rapid technology advances, small businesses are innovating and competing to seize new opportunities.
From artisans to new tech founders, entrepreneurs of all stripes are starting new endeavors. What does the small business landscape look like today? What impact do small businesses have on their local communities? How are these businesses investing in their employees and building the workforce of the future? The Atlantic explored what it takes for small businesses to get off the ground, grow and thrive.
