Small business born global – RSA Group
However, the vast majority (92%) of SME owners believe they started out as a local or UK business rather than European or global, while four fifths (82%) admit they are more concerned about local risks than global threats. This perception gap is leaving small businesses open to ‘hidden’ or ‘shadow’ risks (i.e. risks beyond their physical footprint that haven’t been recognised or managed), and causing them to miss out on significant international growth opportunities. External perceptions of SMEs also contribute to this ‘shadow risk’, with three quarters (74%) of SME owners saying the view that small businesses are local by default is out-dated. Top concerns related to international expansion include banking security and fraud (75%), cyber-attacks (69%) and economic turmoil (69%). This is a real concern, with almost a third (29%) of SME owners having experienced such an incident.

Majority of small businesses are born global, not local
The business behaviours identified in the RSA report The New Internationals demonstrate the global nature of even the smallest companies in the UK. Nearly three quarters of small businesses had a website in their first year, while around half used online banking and a quarter had overseas suppliers, overseas customers and cloud storage. A fifth of SME owners also travelled internationally on business in their first year.
However, the vast majority of SME owners believe they started out as a local or UK business rather than European or global, while four fifths admit they are more concerned about local risks than global threats.

Matthew Rooda – GSEA
Matthew took his childhood farming experience to create optimal solutions for livestock care. Through his agricultural tech company, SwineTech, he provides farmers with the necessary technologies to reduce piglet deaths. The product tracks sows real time health and teaches mother sows to stand up if they are crushing their babies.
The biggest obstacle Matthew has faced was the discouragement from his university animal welfare specialists about the potential of his business idea. He is grateful for his advisor’s encouragement to keep going and the resilience of his team in spite of surrounding doubts. (2017 innovation award)

Where are all the Contingent Workers
BLS released 2017 Contingent Worker Supplement (CWS). The results showed a slight decline in the percent of workers whose sole or main job was an alternative work arrangement from 10.7 in 2005 to 10.1 in 2017. How do we reconcile these findings with the CWS results? Where are all the contingent workers? We offer a few possibilities. A recent paper linking household survey respondents to tax filing data illustrates just how inconsistently people respond in different data sources: just 35 percent of respondents who filed the self-employment (SE) schedule on their taxes reported in the CPS that they are self-employed. Importantly, this discrepancy is increasing.
