How to Make the Most of Small Business Week

More than 50% of Americans own a small business or work for one, and small business owners create two-thirds of all new jobs in this country. You’re not just the backbone of the U.S. economy, you’re also the feet and legs that keep it moving along.

That’s why the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) set aside this week, May 1-7, to recognize small business owners. National Small Business Week celebrates the critical contributions you make every day to grow the economy, create jobs and drive innovation.

How to Make the Most of Small Business Week

So take some time to pat yourself on the back this week. Here’s how you can join the celebration:

Social Media: Share your success stories and goals with Small Business Week participants using the hashtag#DreamSmallBiz. The SBA has also provided a fill-in-the-blank graphic, “Entrepreneurs Are,” you can use to capture your big dreams.

Events: In-person events across the country include a panel of entrepreneurs discussing marketing and growth challenges on May 5 in Phoenix, Arizona; and SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet and San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo discussing business trends and startup resources on May 6 in San Jose, California. If you can’t attend in person, the events will be livestreamed on the SBA’s website.

Webinars: The SBA is hosting a series of educational webinars this week. Today’s presentation covers digital services that can help your business grow with mobile and social media; the webinar tomorrow, May 4, includes best practices for business loans; and the presentation on May 5 features tips for getting your business financially fit.
