Just as the rival kings in Game of Thrones battle to expand their powerbases, in real life, entrepreneurs compete to get their businesses off the ground and into profitable status. A new infographic produced by the team at loans.org, and themed after the popular television series Game of Thrones, sheds light on interesting statistics related to business startups and financing.
For instance, while capital has been very difficult to obtain, a full 20 percent of last year’s entrepreneurs were able to finance their startups with business loans. Of those, the average business loan balance was $256,060.
But that still left 80 percent of entrepreneurs to find capital elsewhere. Out of those who said they were unable to get money from a lender, 53 percent claimed that lack of capital prevented them from growing or expanding their business.
That correlates directly into missed job opportunities for Americans looking for work.
The infographic goes on to reveal other business-related data for 2012, depicting the gender, education and experience levels of your average entrepreneur in a visually appealing manner.
Some of the highlights include:
- One-third of startup owners were women
- A greater share of female business owners had master’s or doctorate degrees
- 52 percent of 2012’s business owners had started more than one company
