30 Best Small Companies to Watch 2020

PeopleTec, Inc. – Providing an exceptional customer support by employing and retaining a highly skilled workforce


Small businesses account for the vast majority of all US companies, and employ nearly half the private workforce, reports the Small Business Administration. Surprisingly, businesses with fewer than 100 people on their teams have the largest share of employment. Small companies are an anchor of the economy, creating job opportunities, and driving innovation—entrepreneurship benefits both individuals and communities. Owning a small business can be an opportunity to grow professionally and reach your full potential. This journey can teach you new skills while allowing you to achieve significant financial rewards. At the same time, you have a chance to contribute to society as a whole and help others better themselves. This process also gives you a deeper understanding of your business.

You get to know your customers so that you can meet their expectations. Over time, you acquire the skills needed to communicate clearly with your team, lead a significant change process, and achieve organizational goals. Good management requires more than strong leadership skills. Successful entrepreneurs build and manage relationships with shareholders, suppliers, and potential partners. They also keep an open mind and implement new technologies to drive productivity and efficiency. They know when to take risks and are willing to learn from their mistakes.
