ICIC Report

Small Businesses Drive Job Creation in Big Cities and Their Inner Cities in the US

In a new report, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) shows how important small businesses are as job creators in 10 of America’s largest cities and their under-resourced inner cities.  
Small businesses are the backbone of urban economies, providing critical jobs for local residents. This report offers compelling data on the jobs created by businesses with less than 250 employees in 10 cities (Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco/ Oakland, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.), making a strong case for city leaders to support the growth of small businesses with the same resources and intentionality as they do with the attraction and retention of large businesses.
