Small Businesses: A Cause Large Business Should Take Up

I know I'm prejudiced. I think entrepreneurship can solve some of the world's problems both in the developed and developing world. 

This is one reason I wrote an article for Triple Pundit about corporations helping small businesses as part of their social responsibility work. American companies just had their best quarter ever. If those corporations want to prosper in the future, then they need to ensure that small businesses thrive, too. Reinvesting profits into activities that support small businesses is a great way for these large corporations to ensure their own prosperity; it helps their customers and the overall economy as well. 

A win-win-win!
