The article is devoted to the study of small enterprises’ risks in Russia. The surveyed enterprises incorporated at Voronezh region. However, the territorial scope of their activities is diversified; they have business relations with a wide range of domestic enterprises. This allows us to consider the enterprises as representatives of not only regional, but also Russian business. The research was conducted in a form of expert survey, in which 23 heads of small enterprises participated. Questionnaires were treated using the fuzzy set method, which allows calculating not only average values and their statistical significance, but also presenting results in the range from optimistic to pessimistic vision of risks. As a result, we got the opportunity to see the risks not only as an objective characteristic of the external environment, but also their perception by small business. The results obtained indicate a high level of risk for small businesses and a strong differentiation of expert opinions.
