Entrepreneurs are the key drivers of the U.S. economy, accounting for a majority of the nation’s new job creation and innovations. According to a survey of the U.S. Census Bureau, self-employed individuals who have no paid employees run 75 percent of American businesses.

The Hartford Financial Services Group has been supporting new generations of entrepreneurs and business leaders through its national philanthropic and community programs. The company has made a commitment of $16 million over five years to help small business owners succeed through its Communities with HART initiative, which is celebrating its first anniversary.
