The head of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet announced that this year’s National Small Business Week will be held from May 4-8, 2015. This year’s theme will be “SBA: Dream Big, Start Small.”
Contreras-Sweet will highlight the week with small business events in Miami, Los Angeles, San Antonio, New York City and culminating in Washington, D.C. where national winners will be recognized and awarded. Additionally, recognition events throughout SBA’s 10 Regions and 68 Districts will be held throughout the months of May and June.
Every year since 1963 SBA takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
