Small Business Week 2017, Celebrate with us!

Honored Contributor

National Small Business week is your time to shine!  It's a week dedicated to honoring the entrepreneurs, mom and pop shops, local business, or any small business. 

 

A little history

National Small Business week started in 1963, making this tradition over 50 years old. The goal is to "Recognize the critical contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners." Did you know that "More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about 2 our of every 3 new jobs in the U.S. each year?"
