More than 50 percent of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. These statistics remind us how important small businesses are in America, as well as the importance of celebrating our grassroots heritage. From May 12th to the16th, the SBA invites you to celebrate America’s small businesses with National Small Business Week (NSBW).
The SBA is hosting events in San Francisco, Kansas City, Boston, and Washington DC, as well as hosting additional NSBW Events. Our event team is planning to be at all these events to help business owners better understand how they can leverage their business credit to grow and hire in 2014!
Join us in celebrating America’s small businesses by checking out the events near you.
