Small businesses employ 2.4 million people in Illinois, nearly half our private sector workforce. The Small Business Outlook Survey is the most thorough, forward looking source of information about small businesses (those with 500 or fewer employees) in the Chicago region. It is both a current snapshot and a glimpse into the future of a crucial sector of our economy.

The survey data helps shape Chicagoland Chamber programming and policy advocacy to directly support growing businesses. It is also provided to government, community, and business leaders to help them decide where to direct their own resources. Our region’s mid-market and global enterprise businesses are particularly interested in the survey because it provides information that helps them better serve and engage with vibrant, growing small businesses.

The State of Small Business is a thought leadership and networking event for businesses of all sizes. The reception will include analysis of the Small Business Outlook Survey and guest speakers. Appetizers, wine and beverages will be served.

Since 2014, the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Loyola University Chicago Quinlan School of Business, has surveyed small business owners in Chicagoland about their current perceptions and outlooks toward the future.
