New ideas for June 2017

Achieve greater success now and take that dream vacation later. Meet with a SCORE mentor today!



Drawing from SCORE's large, diverse population of clients, this new data report is the first in a series providing a snapshot of the current American small business landscape.

At a glance:
  • Most critical service for pre-startups' success? More than 27% answered "marketing and sales."
  • Start-ups reported creating work for an average of three people.
  • More than 50% of start-up owners relied most heavily on the advice of other businesses owners or peers compared to other sources of advice.
In addition to significant findings on the employment impact of start-ups and microbusinesses, this study highlights several previously unexplored areas that will benefit from future research in upcoming SCORE Megaphone of Main Street reports.
