Of the mere 25% of small businesses that survive the first 10 years, just 1-2% experience growth. These abnormally successful businesses are often twice-exceptional. Not only do the ventures outlive the average lifespan of a small business, but the top 1% of small businesses also accounts for the creation of about 60% of new private-sector jobs.
