A thriving small business ecosystem is central to creating a dynamic and equitable American economy. We believe small businesses are not just the backbone of the American economy; they are its foundation. Indeed, small businesses represent 99% of all employer firms and account for half of our nation’s jobs and economic output, and their creativity spurs innovation in all sectors of the economy.
Small business entrepreneurship is a proven pathway for Americans from all walks of life to build income, independence and financial security for themselves, their families and their employees. If provided the proper resources and public policies to unleash their potential, they inject life and vitality into communities, provide quality jobs and boost prosperity for all.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
