Micro businesses, companies with fewer than ten employees, generally work like small businesses but have some differences in getting funding and expanding.
Micro businesses aren’t the same as small businesses. Micro businesses can be viewed as a subset of the term “small business.”
Small businesses, like micro businesses, don’t have a standard definition across the board, as the definition varies among different industries. For example, in the manufacturing industry, a small business includes less than or equal to 500 employees. Simultaneously, in the retail and service domain, the average annual revenue should be less than or equal to $6 million. SBA standards allow for small businesses to have easier access to loans and government contracts than micro businesses.
