Our Generous Sponsors
Sacramento Municipal Utilities District (SMUD)
SMUD is committed to the growth and development of the local business community. As Sacramento’s community-owned electric service provider, SMUD has been supporting local business for more than 70 years. Here's a few things SMUD had accomplished in just over a year...
- 763: LOCAL BUSINESSES ENROLLED IN SEED PROGRAM
- 1,130: JOBS CREATED WITH SMUD'S HELP
- $74 million: SMUD CONTRACTS AWARDED TO LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES
SMUD's SEED (Supplier Education and Economic Development) program offers incentives to local small businesses who participate in SMUD's competitive bid process. It also helps prime contractors find local sub-contractors, which gives their bids or proposals a competitive edge.
SMUD awards $200 to $300 million in contracts every year, $40 to $60 million of which goes to SEED vendors and suppliers.

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.
