Business Insider, an American financial and business news website, claims 99.7% of all companies in the United States are considered small. That’s approximately 28.8 million businesses. The Small Business Administration (SBA) states 20% have a chance of failing within the first year. Additionally, 34% of all new startups fail in year two, while very few businesses will make it beyond year five. Small business survival odds have not changed in over two decades
