Small and medium businesses are often ignored and left in the shadow of the larger conglomerates that shine brightly on the industrial landscape. The reasons for this are understandable.
After all, large businesses employ hundreds, if not thousands of people. They have a greater economic footprint. Most of all, they have a greater presence in popular culture. This naturally makes their presence felt in a more impactful manner.
If you stop and think about it, the real story that comes to the fore is rather different. Statistics show that more than 99% of all businesses in the US are SMBs, and these employ fewer than a thousand people. By sheer numbers alone, SMBs are significant drivers of economic growth.
