New Jobs Come from New Companies

Several months ago I first heard the following statement and it’s really stuck with me:

The majority of new jobs created over the next 10 years will come from companies that aren’t in existence today.

Think about that for a minute. As a country, we have a real unemployment problem on our hands, one which many people believe is more structural than temporary. Yes, existing businesses will create some new jobs but it’s critical for entrepreneurs to step up and build great companies. Our country depends on it.

The next time you think about entrepreneurship, think about job creation and how important it is for our future.

What else? What are your thoughts on the statement that most new job creation over the next 10 years will come from companies that aren’t in existence today?

  1. Agree 100%. Entrepreneurship drives not only individuals but also families, and creates future for of us. Thanks to all the great entrepreneurs out there who make it happen and we all know that we need more 🙂

  2. So true. New companies spur new jobs inside AND outside their own walls. LinkedIn was founded in 2003 and now employs roughly 4,200 people. Plus, an untold numbers of job-seekers have found work thanks to this 10-year old site. LinkedIn isn’t unique, either; I wonder how many of the companies appearing on the Forbes list of Fastest Growing Tech Companies were around 10 years ago? http://onforb.es/14vUXq6

  3. This is definitely in my mind as I think about the Atlanta (and beyond) landscape of the true impact of entrepreneurship. How can we, as people who are passionate about our own startup, infect others around the globe to impact their community with the new “lemonade stand” on the corner?
