Every big business starts small. But, at the same time, there’s nothing wrong with staying small. In fact, running a small business is a great way to serve your local community, become financially independent, and leave a lasting impact on the world.
And added together, all these small businesses are a major economic driver in both developed and developing nations. Almost half of global GDP is generated by small businesses, and they account for 66% of all jobs.
So to honour the power and potential of the entrepreneurial spirit, ZenBusiness decided to take a look at the next generation of potential small enterprise owners.
Its researchers gathered data from several online sources to see what types of businesses people dream of running. They then put the findings into several world maps highlighting the number one business entrepreneurs in every country want to start.
Overall, clothing-related businesses came out on top. It was the most searched term by people interested in starting a business in 22 countries across the world.
And there are plenty of aspiring real estate magnates out there, too. How to start a real estate business was the top online search in 19 nations, including Iceland, Germany, and Cyprus.
Cleaning businesses and coffee shops are two more areas of interest for ambitious self-starters who dream of being their own boss.
Soup production is one of the more surprising results. It took the number one spot in Uzbekistan.
Currently worth over $16billion, the global soap production industry is expected to grow by around 5% over the next few years. Uzbekistan’s low labour costs and large reserves of the raw materials used in soup make this small nation the ideal place to start a fledgling cosmetics company.
So keep an eye out for luxury Uzbek soap ranges hitting the shelves soon!
