According to the Babson College report:
- 63.7 percent of participants increased revenues within 6 months
- 44.8 percent of participants increased jobs within 6 months
These numbers are significantly higher than the 37 percent and 18 percent respectively of small businesses who increase revenues and add jobs, according to data from the National Small Business Association.
