The Middle Market Power Index series focuses on the characteristics and economic impact of U.S. middle market firms. This report from American Express and Dun & Bradstreet investigates the growing ethnic and gender diversity in the ownership of middle market enterprises and how these firms differ from all middle market companies by size, industry sector and age. Some of the insights gained from this report include:

  • Diverse middle market firms are growing in number and economic clout.

  • Women are just as likely to own/lead a middle market firm as the average U.S. business owner, while minorities are twice as likely.

  • Women-owned/-led middle market companies are found in similar proportions as all women-owned/led firms across the U.S.

  • Ethnically diverse states are home to more diverse middle market enterprises, with Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Alaska topping the list. Most diverse middle market firms remain smaller than average.

  • Women- and minority-owned middle market firms are younger than the average middle market company.
