The State of Small Business in 2019

Published on: 1/2/2019. Revised on: 2/11/2019.

For the second year, LendingClub has partnered with Guidant Financial to conduct a State of Small Business survey to better understand the mindset of entrepreneurs across America. Over 2,700 current and aspiring business owners lent their voices to the survey, responding to questions ranging from their economic and political outlook for 2019 to challenges they faced as business owners. The infographic below is a snapshot of the key data that emerged from the survey.

Stay tuned throughout the year as we publish more granular findings, including emerging trends across demographics such as Millennials and women in business.
