(Black PR Wire) MIAMI, Fla. – Small businesses are the fuel that drives the nation’s economy.  The impact of small businesses on economic development has been quite impressive over the years.  These are only some of the many reasons why M. Gill & Associates, Inc. celebrates National Small Business Week, recognized the first week in May (May 2-8, 2021).

“National Small Business Week provides a great opportunity for us to put the spotlight on firms that are making it happen,” said Marie R. Gill, Founder and CEO of M. Gill & Associates, Inc., and Operator of the MBDA Export & CARES Act Business Centers in Florida.  “It’s the perfect time to acknowledge the growing impact minority business enterprises have had on our nation’s economy, including some of the clients.  I salute them for their growth, successes and contributions, and will continue to feature their success stories on our website.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau 2012 Survey of Business Owners, there were 2,100,187 businesses in Florida; 807,817 women-owned firms in Florida and 926,112 minority-owned firms in Florida.  We know that those numbers have increased over the past eight years, especially among women and minorities.
