Origins of National Small Business Week

Instituted more than 50 years ago by the President of the United States of America, the NSBW recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. These individuals’ endeavors account for more than 50% of the nation’s employee workforce and create two-thirds of the nation’s jobs every year. Therefore, this week celebrates the impact these individuals have had on the American economy and encourages them to drive innovation and increase America’s competitiveness on the global market.

What are the benefits of participating in Small Business Week?

National Small Business Week is a great opportunity for business owners to shine the light on key strategic skills, and innovative processes that have propelled their success. For example, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), whose mission is to help Americans start, build and grow businesses, organizes a #SmallBusinessWeek Hackathon where businesses gather together to brainstorm solutions for challenges small businesses face regularly.

The SBA also produce an awards ceremony where small business are recognized for their incredible achievements. This is an excellent time for business owners to showcase major milestones they have achieved throughout the year. Lastly, small business owners have the opportunity to participate in events where they can learn how to grow their business. If you’d like to hear more about these events, please visit www.sba.gov.
