This presentation will tell about work Local First Arizona is doing and why independent businesses are vital for the economy to grow. I will share examples and studies that prove that locally owned businesses create more jobs and more economic activity because they do business with other local companies. Startups play such a huge role in economic growth as they are one of the main job creators in the country.
