About National Small Business Week
Supporting Small Business Since 1963
“Every year since 1963 the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing that the country should honor and recognize National Small Business Week. In the U.S., small business is the backbone of the economy. They create two out of three new jobs and more than half of Americans own or work for small businesses.”
- Stephen Morris, Online Media Coordinator for the U.S. Small Business Administration
This week is a time for entrepreneurs and business owners to learn the skills and make the connections that will drive them towards the future they’re envisioning. It is a time to celebrate all the work it takes to build a successful business. This week is dedicated to small businesses and what they mean for our local economy.
During National Small Business Week 2022, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will host a "Building a Better America through Entrepreneurship" virtual Summit, May 2-5. Learn tools and gain information that entrepreneurs need to further power our economic growth, strengthen our supply chains, and deliver the products and services Americans depend on every day.
