At the risk of coming into this when it’s a dead rubber – I actually wrote a post on this about 2 years ago: Do 90% of small businesses fail?.

After looking at 3 studies, the short answer I found was that 33% of businesses fail, 17% end prematurely and the remaining 50% are still open.

And yes – the definition of failure is important.Because it determines whether the business itself failed – or whether the business owner chose to close it due to lifestyle changes.
