“An analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data on the 569,419 businesses launched in March 1994 found that just 435,134 made it to the end of 1995, 257,488 lasted until 2000 and by the time it got to 2019, just 94,391 of the businesses were still kicking. That’s a 25-year survival rate of just 16.6 percent.” The Van Trump Report, 12.4.19.
