Why Small Businesses Need Help

Small Business is the engine that drives our economy, yet 80% of all small businesses fail within the first five years. The primary causes of failure include under-capitalization, lack of experience and minimal marketing expertise. The success rate for small business can be improved by focusing on management resources, information resources and skills training.
