Since 1963 our nation has designated one week per year – Small Business Week – to recognize the critical contributions of entrepreneurs and small business owners just like you.
This year the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will recognize the importance of small business owners across the nation from April 29th to May 5th.
According to the SBA, “more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.”
The SBA is celebrating the spirit of innovators and entrepreneurs through events such as:
- Small Business Week Hackathon on April 27-29
- National Awards Ceremonies on April 29 & 30
- Twitter Chat on May 4th
- Virtual Conference on May 1-3
Join us in celebrating the many small businesses that propel our nation, cities, and communities by attending one of the SBA virtual events listed above, or head to sba.gov/small-business-week for more information on how you can participate.
