National Small Business Week In May

[ 0 ] Apr. 30, 2014 | SBO Editor

National Small Business Week

National Small Business Week is coming. It’s that time of year again! SBA is gearing up for National Small Business Week, May 12-16. And like last year, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is taking the show on the road to celebrate small businesses across the United States. Activities for Naitonal Small Business Week will include forums and panels about trends in small business, innovation, financing, business growth – and more. There will also be matchmaking events and networking opportunities during National Small Business Week.

National Small Buisness Week will kick off in San Francisco on May 12, followed by events in Kansas City, Boston and Washington, DC. National Small Business Week will wrap up in our nation’s capital by honoring small businesses from across the country, culminating in the announcement of 2014’s National Small Business Person of the Year.

Check out the full conference schedule here.
