State of California Archives: on Corporations


Carly Fiorina: Focus on supporting small family-owned businesses

Carly began her career as a receptionist at a small business and worked her way up the corporate ladder to become the first woman to lead a Fortune 20 company. Over the course of her decades of experience, she witnessed first hand the economic engines that are small businesses.

Given these tough times, our top priorities should be economic growth and job creation. That means focusing our efforts on supporting the small businesses, family-owned businesses, innovators and entrepreneurs that employ more than 50% of Americans and create 2/3 of our nation's new jobs.

Carly recognizes the importance of increasing access to capital so that small businesses have the resources they need to succeed, reducing the cost of doing business so that home-grown entrepreneurs have the opportunity to thrive, and eliminating barriers to job creation to put Americans back to work.
