Small Business Week is next week and only happens once a year so why not make the most of it!

We’ll be taking part in Small Business Week by sponsoring two great events and releasing the latest from our quarterly Private Capital Index study that we produce with Pepperdine University.

One of the two events we’ll be participating in is the America’s Small Business Summit. This is an annual U.S. Chamber of Commerce event that “unites small business owners, managers, and entrepreneurs from across the country to learn, network, and discuss common legislative and management concerns.” You can follow along as we learn and share at this event via the DandB Twitter account and the official hashtag: #ASBS.

SCORE Ventura National Small Business Week Expo is the other event D&B Credibility Corp is proud to sponsor during small business week. “SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed nationwide. SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and has been mentoring small business owners for more than forty years.”  The Ventura Chapter is hosting it’s event at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center on May 23, 2012 and will be focused on the theme of “Money & Marketing.” This expo looks to answer some of the most frequently asked questions by small business owners such as “Where can I get funding?” and “How can I increase sales?”

And finally, our team is really excited that we’ll be releasing the results from the Private Capital Access Index we’ve created with Pepperdine University will also be released in honor of small business week.  We’ll be releasing this on, so make sure to subscribe to that blog (or our Twitter account), where we’ll get you access to this study!

These are just some of the ways we’re planning to take part in small business week. How is your business going to participate?
