Long gone are the unique, charming, and eclectic Mom ‘n Pops. They have been replaced by chains, franchises, outlets, and the creativity killer – big box stores. We’ve developed our cities and towns in such a way that most places now seem the same.
We can clearly see the effects of what happens when we allow outside influences to take over our local communities. Not only do these replacements circulate less money through your community, but they have removed the most American of all ingredients from the community mixing bowl – Entrepreneurship.
Stat: For every 2 entrepreneurs America had in 1977, there was 1 in 2010.
This infographic created by Trinity Digital Marketing illustrates The Decline of American Entrepreneurship and is also a call to action to support those emerging entrepreneurs coming up through the ranks.
