We have 700 members & ~60% self identify as small business owners /entrepreneurs and as the COO, I conduct an annual study of their business habits and needs, including info that makes for compelling arguments for city/state/local partners to support Makerspace concepts--like the growth of how many people our small business owners employ, licenses and taxes, if they sell physical goods or services and more. I'd be happy to share the survey/method/data at a panel or whatever format.
