Thank you Chairman Goolsbee, Director Sperling and Secretary Locke, and Secretary Chu.
At the SBA, we’ve always been proud to serve not just Main Street, but also small, high-growth firms. We’ve helped firms like Intel and FedEx as they were just starting out back in the 60s and 70s.
And what we’ve learned is this: High-growth firms are a very small part of the small-business community, but they create the lion’s share of net new jobs each year.
These firms come in many forms across all sectors.
