Find out what small business owners are thinking with the release of the Hiscox annual small business survey.
Next week, Hiscox will release the results of the 2014 DNA of an Entrepreneur survey. The annual survey features responses from 3,500 business owners from the U.S., France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the U.K. In the U.S., 500 small business owners were questioned about the sentiment of their companies and their overall outlook of the business environment within the country.
This year, we’re hosting a TweetChat to discuss the results of the survey. The Hiscox Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Brian Moran of SmallBusinessEdge.com, and Hiscox’s U.S. Head of Communications, Hunter Hoffmann, will highlight the report’s U.S. findings, which include:
- Optimism and Opportunities for the Year Ahead
- Obstacles to Growth
- Social Media Savvy and Cyber Threats
- Small Business Stress
- Closing the Gender Gap
TweetChat participants will receive the chance to win a free business consultation through Brian Moran & Associates, a company that helps small business owners and entrepreneurs run better businesses.
