Market strategies for small business discussion 2 week 1

 

Discussion 2: Small Businesses and Large Companies

Although it is usually major corporations that are highlighted and discussed in the nightly business news, it is actually small businesses that are the lifeblood of most countries. In the United States alone there are more than 27 million small businesses, which generate between 60% and 80% of all new jobs (U.S. Small Business Administration, 2008, p. 47). In China, 60% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is generated by small businesses (Morris, 2011). In Canada, 5 million people, representing almost half of the labor force, are employed by small businesses (Morris, 2011).

These statistics show that small businesses are just as crucial to the global economy as large companies. In this Discussion, you compare small businesses to large companies and consider the entrepreneurial challenges of owning and operating a small business.
