Record Number of Canadians Starting Own Businesses

A new report says a record number of Canadians are starting their own businesses.

The report from CIBC points to a sharp rise in Canadian entrepreneurship – more than half a million Canadians had started their own business in the past two years.

I’m not surprised, as the internet makes it easier than ever to “hang your shingle”.  I recently read the book “$100 Startup” by Chris Guilleabeau and he gives numerous examples of small businesses being started on the web quickly and cheaply.

The report points to specific factors driving the trend to starting your own business including: “the aging population — the over 50 crowd represents 30 per cent of all the new start-ups; technology like the Internet that makes the process easier; outsourcing by corporations to small firms; and the continued influx of immigrants, who represent a sizable section of the self-starters.”

I’m sure this trend is also evident in other countries. This highlights the continued growth of the “online economy” – increased $ being spent online.  All of these new businesses online will also need the “picks and shovels” which are domain names, hosting, web sites, advertising services, etc.
