Throughout the election, the phrase “small business owners are the backbone of the American economy,” was repeated numerous times. One entrepreneur is making sure this wasn’t just lip-service and is launching an ambitious campaign to keep the focus on small businesses in America.
Carissa Reiniger, an entrepreneur who founded a New York City based small business consulting company called Silver Linining LTD, has put together a crusade to remind America just how important small businesses are. The campaign, called “Thank You Small Business,” consists of a series of 10 live events in cities around the country and 20 free webinars. They’ll also be a campaign mailing 25,000 thank you cards to real small business owners.
“Thank You Small Business” hopes to reach over 25,000 small businesses across the United States. The campaign shines a spotlight on small business’ true impact on the national economy and the collective power of a campaign that brings together big business leaders focused on changing the economic outlook, one small business at a time.
“We hope that all the free events and resources we have put together for small businesses will give them a big dose of encouragement and acknowledgement and also arm them with a ton of practical teachings and resources that will literally help them go straight home and grow their businesses,” Reiniger said in a statement.
The campaign plans to hold events in New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, Portland, ME., Atlanta, Dallas, Tucson, Denver, Las Vegas and Oakland.
