Did you know…younger companies are 44% more likely than established companies to be female or minority owned? Or, that these same companies are 45% more likely to be headquartered in urban areas?

Nearly a decade after the Great Recession new business creation in the U.S. has finally ramped up. But it’s not business as usual. The post-recession business owner looks and behaves much differently than their more established counterparts.

  1. Insights collected from more than 2,400 business banking decision-makers in the U.S.
  2. How to stay top-of-mind with the younger breed of companies
  3. A new approach to relationship building
