According to the 2015 Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurship, Illinois – where City Business Solutions is based – ranks 26th in the nation for start-up activity. The rate of new entrepreneurs is 0.22 percent which is well behind the majority of the country. Although Chicago has made excellent progress in recent years, City Business Solutions believes these statistics confirm that there is significant room to improve. Chicago already holds major annual events like ‘Chicago Ideas Week’ and start-up incubators like ‘1871’ and ‘Matter’ but the firm believe more needs to be done to encourage entrepreneurship in the area.
City Business Solutions believe that many people fear failure and this is why they are not taking the plunge into entrepreneurship. The firm feels that many people are scared of getting it wrong and are not willing to take the risk. “This plays a strong role in why people are not innovating,” highlights a spokesperson for the firm. City Business Solutions believes that carefully planned out ideas and strong market research can severely reduce this risk and urges aspiring entrepreneurs to push for innovative ideas.
City Business Solutions are urging more creative thinkers and risk-takers to take the plunge and believe that many budding entrepreneurs could achieve success if they put their minds to it. CEO of City Business Solutions, Jamie Shahin has achieved plenty of success as an entrepreneur within the sales and marketing industry. As a business owner, Jamie Shahin exceeds client expectations on a regular basis and has received awards for her contribution to the sales industry. The entrepreneur believes that many other Chicagoans could follow in her footsteps.
