  • Small businesses are the “lifeblood of our economy,” employing half of the workforce in the United States and creating nearly two out of every three new American jobs.

Later funding comes from a wider circle of acquaintances, typically also close to home and then, perhaps, from angel investors and, only later, venture capitalists and private equity groups.
