The signature event of the U.S. Small Business Administration, Small Business Week, will be held June 17th through June 21st. This year’s events will take place in multiple cities across the country and will include informative events designed to help small businesses grow and succeed.
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they’re responsible for creating two out of every three new jobs each year. National Small Business Week will provide an opportunity to highlight outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and other job creators from all 50 states.
Small business owners will get a chance to interact with federal government officials, local elected leaders and representatives from national and small business experts. As well as networking and workshops, there will be expert panels discussing topics relevant to running a successful small business. To those unable to physically attend, National Small Business Week will also feature daily online forums that will focus on subjects such as exporting and access to capital. All events will be live-streamed on the SBA website, www.sba.gov.
The locations and dates for National Small Business Week are:
