For America to continue to grow GDP and jobs, we need at least 1 million new start-up businesses annually. Right now we have more like 400,000 start-up businesses a year. Most new job growth comes from small business and entrepreneurs within the first 7 years of business enterprise. The hunt is for those additional 600,000 of necessary annual business start-ups in America.
