Small Business Survey In The News

Our Quarterly Small Business Index Survey was released to the media for the first time yesterday showing that small business owners are growing optimistic and nearly 40% are planning to hire in the next six months.  Our Florida Chamber Small Business Council is able to keep the pulse of issues facing small businseses through this survey.  This survey tool serves as a way to inform elected leaders and the media in Florida about the current state of small businesses.  We know that 4 of 5 new jobs will come from small businesses, so this information is critical to the policy development process in the Florida Capitol.

See below for a full copy of the report and what the media and leaders are saying about the results:
