Intuit brings us By The Numbers: Small Business in the U.S. and Abroad. I like the mix of 2D and 3D visuals, but the visuals at the bottom seem odd. Showing different statistics for a handful of countries instead of comparing the same statistics across countries makes that part harder to understand. I would guess that was dependent on what data was available for the different countries.
Inflation and currency exchange play large factors in the cost to start-up a new business abroad compared with the United States. If you’re considering starting up a small business, the below infographic breaks down start-up costs, ease of business and success rates broken down by country, as well as a view of small business around the globe.
I appreciate that they cite their sources, but I wish I could give credit to the designer, who isn’t listed on the infographic.
As a small business owner myself, I hope I fall on the good side of the survival statistics!
Thanks for sendng the link Rachael!
