The Agenda for California’s Entrepreneurs

Friday, March 1, 2024

Small Business Majority is enacting a comprehensive state policy agenda to ensure entrepreneurship is recognized as the lifeforce of a thriving and inclusive economy in California. Our state’s 4.1 million small businesses employ 7.5 million people, which amounts to nearly half of the private workforce.  

In order to ensure these businesses thrive, California lawmakers must build upon the progress we have made in investing in small businesses. The below outlined policies will support and empower entrepreneurs by guaranteeing they have access to responsible capital to start and grow their business, access to affordable healthcare and benefits that allow small business owners to compete for top talent, and a level playing field so they may compete with larger companies.
