Small business is big. Policy-makers often refer to small and medium sized businesses as the "heart" or "engine" of the economy. Roughly half of global employment and GDP is generated by the SMB sector.

It's important. Small businesses innovate, hire local workers, and spend profits locally, which recirculate in their communities. They meaningfully contribute to their communities' civic life by adding to its diversity, identity, and independence.

And it needs our help. An aging demographic of business owners, along with limited access to capital and talent are major issues that threaten the sector's long-term competitiveness.

To ensure small business continues to thrive, we need a thoughtful approach to business succession.
