Small businesses, which represent approximately 98 percent of all local companies, are the backbone of the regional economy. This initiative, which includes a survey of 164 businesses along the 78 Corridor, seeks to uncover insight and gain a deeper understanding of small business perceptions of the regional business climate. The end goal is to develop new and enhance existing programming and support for small businesses in the 78 Corridor. For the purpose of this survey, small businesses are defined as having fewer than 100 employees.
