In recognition of the small business community’s contributions to the American economy and society, the President of the United States designates one week each year as National Small Business Week. Leading up to National Small Business Week (SBW), the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), in conjunction with public and private sector small business supporters, will host special events at the local and state levels to honor and present awards to local entrepreneurs and those who support small businesses.
National Small Business Week is April 30 - May 5, 2018.
