Want Evidence that High-Growth Entrepreneurs are Leading the Recovery?
Ernst & Young LLP, @HerbEngert
Data collected from more than 600 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2012 finalists shows that innovation-driven entrepreneurs continue to defy the odds, expand their companies, spur job growth and create momentum in an otherwise declining economy.
Research compiled from these companies, which together employ nearly 700,000 people, affirms that nationally, these innovative, expansion-oriented entrepreneurs continue to grow impressively, achieving the following over the past two years.
30% job growth, compared to negative overall US job growth (approx.-1%)
48% revenue growth, compared to overall US revenue growth of 5.6%
These results are proof that entrepreneurs, who are focusing on innovation and new-marketexpansion, are doing far better than the national averages.
