Small Business is our Business

Immigrants started new companies or became self-employed at twice the rate of native-born Americans in 2014——creating an average of 520 businesses monthly per 1,000 people. This is up from 26% in 2013. The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, a think tank and educational nonprofit for entrepreneurial development, annually  conducts a survey of business start-ups nationwide.  These immigrants accounted for the majority of ” Main Street” growth in such businesses as restaurants, retailers, dry cleaning services and beauty salons.
