The world gets smaller every day, yet expectations are so much higher.
Technology and the internet are wonderful things and opportunities are huge, but so are the demands.
Small business owners are the backbone of the global economy but desperately need help!
There are 163m small businesses worldwide and their success leads to job creation, wealth generation and the building of communities.
However, business is complex and getting even more so. 60% of small businesses fail within 5 years and only 1 in 10 last more than 20 years. Many small business owners earn less now than when they were employed. Competition is rife. There’s a massive downward pressure on pricing. Technology is changing whole industries. Governments and banking institutions pay lip service but are of little help.
Something or somebody needs to influence dramatic change to support entrepreneurs and small business owners globally!
Better data and analysis = better decisions which leads to better business, better lives and a better world.
