Keen Independent Research LLC 2015 Small Business Study Summary Report

work2future and the City of San José seek an update on the composition and health of small businesses in Santa Clara County. These organizations need a review of the latest research on the importance of small businesses and entrepreneurship to the economy and the best practices for those assisting the small business community. Keen Independent Research LLC (Keen Independent) worked closely with work2future and City staff to develop these insights. This research was a fast-tracked and streamlined update of the research David Keen and Annette Humm Keen conducted in 2010 and 2006, focusing on changes since the Great Recession. Because of the limited budget and time available for the update study, it is much more focused than our previous small business research assignments.
