It is #SmallBusinessWeek!  To help celebrate those businesses and their contributions to the economy, CTData looked at the public business related data we have on our site that would be interesting to share. 

One of our projects this past year involved liberating the Secretary of State's Business registration data. Although the size of the businesses are not captured in the data, we decided that benefit corporations, a new business entity as of 2014 in Connecticut, are more likely to be small businesses. 

The map shows the location of all the Benefit Corporations that are registered with the Secretary of the State that have a CT address (some businesses registered without providing an address so we could not map them). To see a full list of all the Benefit Corporations, go to our advanced search portal.
