The Small Business Administration (SBA) has announced National Small Business Week (NSBW) will take place from September 22-24. The announcement follows a previous cancellation of the planned May event over COVID-19 concerns.
National Small Business Week is an annual event celebrating the best of small businesses across America. It recognizes small business advocates for their involvement in disaster recovery, government contracting, and their support for small businesses and entrepreneurship. It is also an occasion to present SBA partners in financial and entrepreneurial development. These include the top SCORE Chapter, Small Business Development Center, Women’s Business Center, and Veterans Business Outreach Center.
September’s virtual NSBW will honor the nation’s small businesses including those owned by veterans, women and minorities for their achievements and dedication to their communities. The upcoming NSBW will include events such as educational panels aimed at providing retooling and innovative practices for small businesses to pivot and recover for a stronger economy. The three-day event will recognize national award winners, including the naming of this year’s National Small Business Person of the Year.
