March Startup Sentiment Index™ Shows Aspiring Business Owners Increasingly Confident
NORFOLK, Va., April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneurs who agree or strongly agree that "now is a good time to start a business" grew in March to 69.3% of respondents, the highest recorded since February 2020, before the pandemic became headline news. FranchiseInsights.com compiles monthly the Small Business Startup Sentiment Index™ (SSI) of individuals who have recently inquired about businesses for sale.
The most recent Startup Sentiment Index™ survey was conducted March 25-30, 2021, as news of accelerated vaccination timelines was tempered by reports of increasing Covid cases, following a significant jump in air travel associated with spring vacationing in the U.S.
"Business conditions as perceived by aspiring business owners haven't been better since the pandemic unfolded," says Hunter Stokes, president of FrachiseVentures. "The next several months should show a wave of startups based on this data."

The Small Business Startup Sentiment Index™ is based on a monthly survey of individuals who have recently inquired about businesses or franchises for sale on the digital assets of FranchiseVentures.
