National Small Business Week! #SBDC #SmallBusinessWeek

Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Set as the first week in May, National Small Business Week includes events across the country and educational webinars on a variety of business topics.

America's SBDC“It’s a pleasure to recognize the achievements of small business and the diversity and strength they bring to our economy, it’s too bad we can’t make every week Small Business week. It’s a particular pleasure to recognize all the SBDC clients who are being recognized for their success. America’s SBDCs are proud to be a part of their story and to help them make their dreams a reality. But don’t forget that SBDCs are there for every small business, every week!”
Charles “Tee” Rowe, America’s SBDC President & CEO
