Why start a business in a recession? According to Heather Chaney, program coordinator for SBDC, starting a business in a recession might sound like a risky idea, but some world renowned companies got their start in the midst of an economic meltdown.
“A recession forces small businesses to accomplish more with less; less resources, less employees, less sales and maybe less profit. But, it also may mean less competition as larger firms go out of business or merge with other companies to stay afloat,” she points out. “While there is no fool proof formula for selecting the best time to start a business, with the proper planning and financial resources your small business has a good foundation for success.”
