Why Small Businesses in Rural America Need Digital Tools
It’s no secret that small businesses in the lower middle market have a huge impact on the national and global economy. The latest surprise, however, is just how much of that influence comes from rural America. A new report by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce discovered that unlocking the digital potential of rural businesses across the U.S. could add over $140 billion to the U.S economy over the next three years and create an additional 360,000 full-time jobs in rural communities. Just by adding digital resources into the repertoire of rural small businesses, their reach and impact hits levels that are staggering.
What does this mean for the lower middle market business owners who have yet to implement digital tools and solutions, but cannot afford to do so? It may mean rethinking the investments that get made my hedge funds and financial investment firms. There are 37 million working-age adults and 18 million households in the rural United States. That’s a huge chunk of the population, but while accounting for close to 15% of the adult population and nearly three-quarters of the country’s land mass, annual revenues of rural businesses represent only 3.7% of total gross revenues in the U.S. economy. That discrepancy is limiting to both the national economy and the lower middle market businesses that millions rely on as consumers and workers.
This may lead to a new trend in investment banking that favors the trajectory of lower middle market businesses that are underutilized due to geography. If the potential is there, it is all about matching businesses in rural America to the right investors, and that’s not hard to do with the right connections.
