Our Thinking

A powerful new perspective on the small business sector.

 

Developed in 2018 by SMB Intelligence, Prime Growth is a new classification standard for the small business sector that uses growth-based classification rather than traditional small business segmentation.
 
The Prime Growth Approach is our nine step model to more effectively deliver growth solutions to small business owners, and increase the economic and social impact of those solutions.
 
The Prime Growth framework has been featured in Harvard’s Data-Smart City Solutions, Impact Alpha, Governing, and Route Fifty. It is also used to support research by economists at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and by MBA candidates at some of the world’s leading business schools including Stanford and Northwestern.
