Wakefield Survey In WSJ Finds Business Ready to Invest

Only hours after being released, survey data conducted by Wakefield Research for office equipment maker Brother is already driving high profile media coverage.

One of the biggest finds of the survey, as noted by Reuters, is that nearly half (47%) of small business owners plan to invest in their business in 2011 to gain an advantage over competitors.  This is an 11% increase over last year – a significant rise.

The survey also uncovered some of the non-economic challenges facing small business owners.  For example, “tech downtime” is the time lost to businesses due to problems with office technology.  This is a significant challenge that is faced by 77% of small business owners.

Coverage continues to roll in, including the Wall Street Journal, Biz Journals, Entrepreneur, and many more.
