For those of you who have never taken a look at the general SBA site, it’s highly recommended. There are lots of great resources for aspiring small business owners, including information on financing, investment, research, and special programs; the FAQ section is especially helpful.

Some interesting “Did You Know?” facts about small businesses in America from the SBA include the following:

– There are an estimated 27.2 million small businesses in America.

– More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business.

– Small businesses create 60-80 percent of new jobs in the country.
