During May, Americans pay tribute to Asian and Pacific Islanders that have helped shape the nation and are an instrumental ingredient to the future success of this melting pot. As Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month comes to close, it’s a good time to reflect on how this community and their small businesses are faring amid the Trump Economy.Asian Americans have excelled in virtually every field and occupation imaginable, but there continues to be a strong tradition of entrepreneurship. According to U.S. Census Bureau data, there are now almost 2 million Asian-owned small businesses. Small businesses as a whole support nearly half of all private sector employees and account for nearly two-thirds of new jobs. Asian-owned small businesses already employ over 3.5 million people, but that number will continue to rise as more young Asians are starting businesses and doing so in higher numbers than any other demographic.
