AmTrust Protects the Dreams of Small Businesses

Topics: Small Business

All small businesses start with a vision and a dream. Small business owners dream to spend their lives doing what they’re most passionate about, achieving their goals and succeeding on every level. And with that passion, hard work and a little risk, small business owners wake up and live their dreams every day.

The Impact Small Businesses Have on the Local Community

Small businesses are a huge part of the U.S. economy, accounting for 99.7 percent of all businesses in the country. Generating about 50 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product, small businesses are vital to keeping the American economy strong.

As the backbone of the American economy, small businesses create jobs for millions of people, keeping money in the local community and increasing the value of local real estate. They do all sorts of wonderful things, like fueling innovation and providing more diverse products, as many offer unique items or services you can’t find from a big box outlet. Plus, customer service is always top of mind for small businesses, as owners understand the importance of building relationships with their community. Small business owners often “pay it forward,” too, utilizing other local vendors for the supporting services they may need.

Small businesses are celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which is known as Small Business Saturday. In 2018, it was reported that U.S. consumers spent a record high of around $17.8 billion on Small Business Saturday. Since it’s creation in 2010, an estimated $100 billion has been spent at independent retailers and restaurants across the country.
