 Why Do SWLABDC serves this Small Business Market
Small business owners are a diverse group composed of individuals of all ages, races, and genders, empowered by running their own businesses. In the last two decades 10 percent of American workers chose self-employment (including incorporated self-employment) as their primary occupation. Self-employment rates were highest among the disabled, older age categories, veterans, and individuals with more formal education. African Americans and Latinos self-employed individuals had much larger percentage increases than the self-employed as a whole over the last decade. Self-employment in the United States increased 13.1 percent and it increased 26.6 and 95.7 percent, respectively, for African Americans and Latinos individuals. Also besting the national figures, the number of self-employed Asians and American Indians increased 60.6 percent during this time frame. Much of the national increase was among immigrants, as the native-born self-employed population increased 7.4 percent over the decade. Education continues to be the gateway toward success. Self-employed college graduates and individuals with masters degrees and above increased 35 percent and 29 percent, respectively.
Because of this, we give your small businesses the boost it needs that will help bring your business into the financial mainstream of the Free Enterprise System and Marketplace.
