Business and Investment in the East Bay

Resource Map

The East Bay EDA's "Building on Our Assets" report published in October 2011 found that nearly 70% of jobs in the East Bay are created by businesses employing less than 100 people. It also found that 47% of companies with 1-2 employees and 49% of with 3-25 employees fail during their first five years of operation. This data launched East Bay EDA’s East Bay Small Business Initiative in 2012 with a focus to help connect entrepreneurs, small business startups, growing and mature business owners with resources and business professionals that could address their specific needs.
