What is an Entrepreneur?
An entrepreneur is a person who creates and operates a business, often taking on big financial risks to do so. While “entrepreneur” and “business owner” are often used interchangeably, not all business owners are considered entrepreneurs. We strive to provide information for both entrepreneurs and business owners.
The Importance of Small Businesses
Small businesses are an important part of the economy, presenting employment opportunities to citizens throughout the United States. Small businesses greatly contribute to local economies while stimulating economic growth. Larger businesses even rely on small businesses for the completion of various tasks that are outsourced. Small businesses are often able to respond to changing markets quickly and adapt where larger companies may not. When customers support a small business, they are giving money back to their community.
