For nearly 60 years, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

National Small Business Week: Building a Better America Through Entrepreneurship will take place May 1-7, 2022. Again this year, we applaud America’s Small Businesses for their resilience, ingenuity, and creativity.

As SBA Administrator Isabella Casilla Guzman recently said, and I wholeheartedly agree:

“Entrepreneurs are innovators and creators at their core, delivering the products and services we depend on and making our neighborhoods, towns, and cities more vibrant places to live and work. They give their all every day to achieve the American dream of business ownership and, by doing so, advance America’s economy and global competitiveness. This is a time to celebrate them and help ensure they continue to get the support they need to survive and thrive in communities across America.”   

The U.S. Small Business Administration and SCORE Association will host a free, 4-day live virtual summit on May 2-5 during National Small Business Week. Registration is free to the public and attendees can participate in as many or as few events as they wish. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur or small business owner looking for inspiration or help the Summit will be well worth your time!

During National Small Business Week, more than 200 events take place across the country — either in person or virtually honoring our SBA district office winners. You can find those locations at the webpage listed here!

I hope you will join me in celebrating our small businesses this year!
