On the heels of a turbulent year that delivered a global pandemic and widespread social unrest, small businesses in the U.S. set their sights on persevering and overcoming in 2021.
With 66 percent of all small businesses reporting negative impacts from the COVID-19 crisis, the fallout from the pandemic has been far-reaching and long-lasting. As small businesses make up more than 99 percent of all businesses operating in the U.S., it’s no surprise that the pandemic swiftly and noticeably altered the business landscape as a whole.

Here, we’ll break down our most meaningful survey results, and highlight emerging trends in post-pandemic small business recovery.
