I want to thank all who came out to a standing only crowd support Dr. Anderson at the 2017 SBA Awards at the DuPont Country Club, May 3rd. As I stood on the podium to accept this prestigious award, I emphasized how vital small businesses are to improving the Economic Health of our Local Economy. Small Businesses create jobs-period. Almost half of the private sector workforce (49%) is employed by a small business- that's 120 million people in the U.S.
Small Businesses also lead the way in product innovation and technology by producing patents that spur innovation - thus creating even more jobs. Whether the business is in healthcare, which is one of the fastest growing job sector in the U.S., or the small mom & pop ice cream store in lower Delaware; the aggregate economic impact on our Delaware Economy tips the scales.
