Welcome to NBCUniversal’s Open Doors, presented by State Farm® – our new initiative that supports all small businesses across the country, with a special spotlight on minority small businesses.
Minority businesses account for more than 50% of the 2 million new businesses started in the U.S. in the last 10 years. These successful enterprises have not only helped to create 4.7 million jobs, but now there are more than 4 million minority-owned companies in the U.S., and while the number of minority-owned businesses continues to increase, much more still needs to be done to encourage and strengthen the community.
That’s why we want to ensure that all small businesses have access to our playbook, filled with downloadable resources, tips and strategies, advertising tutorials, and best-in-class business practices. In addition to utilizing our handy resources, you will also find a variety of insightful content relevant to small business owners.
Open Doors is crafted to be a two-way street. To best support the small business community, we need to hear from the ones who bring it to life! We want to feature advice directly from small business owners across the country right here in our playbook. Use #NBCUOpenDoors across all social platforms for a chance to have your post amplified to the entire Open Doors small business network!
