Entrepeneurs looking to start a small business may find success in several industries projected to grow rapidly as of 2015, such as food e-commerce, gamification software for businesses, agricultural software and public sector technology. Starting a small business carries risks even in sectors with high demand.
Other growing industries are management and technology consulting, cleaning and building maintenance, green technologies and graphic design, according to data from 2013. Individuals who love cooking can start a catering business, while those who enjoy interacting with people can become senior care providers, child care providers or yoga teachers. Many small business owners run their businesses out of their homes, which reduces overhead costs.
