    Attention all small business owners! Want to ensure resilience in the face of any challenge? Look no further!

    Small Business Has a Big Role in the Economy
    Small business is an economic engine
    Small businesses drive the U.S. economy. They are a critical part of our economic ecosystem where big businesses and small businesses are vendors, employees, partners, and customers to each other.

    Why it matters: Ninety-nine percent of businesses are small businesses, they employ nearly half of the entire American workforce, and they represent 43.5% of America’s GDP.

    Be smart: Here is a look at small businesses’ major role in the economy. Dig deeper with our Small Business Data Center.

    Small Business is an Economic Engine. In 2014, (the most recent year for which data are available) small businesses generated nearly $5.9 trillion in economic output, roughly 40% of GDP.

    Small Businesses are Big Employers. Small businesses are job creators. Forty-six percent of Americans are employed by small businesses. That’s 62 million people.
    • And:  As firms get older, they hire more workers.

    What we’re doing: The Chamber is committed to supporting and advocating for small businesses.
    • The Chamber launched the Prompt Pay Pledge to ensure small businesses are paid quickly so they can invest, grow, and lift the entire business economic ecosystem.
    • CO–, the Chamber’s small business platform, equips small businesses with the tools and insights they need to ensure their resilience in the face of any challenge.

    The bottom line: We work every day to give small businesses a big voice in Washington, connecting entrepreneurs and federal officials and advocating for policies that help them grow.
