Join Us for Coverage of National Small Business Week

President Obama has proclaimed May 23 – May 29, 2010 National Small Business Week, to honor and celebrate small businesses here in the United States.

National Small Business Week 2010I am delighted that this year we are able to bring you coverage from the official activities in Washington D.C. during Small Business Week.  The official activities include educational seminars, a townhall meeting, awards, and networking events.

I’ll be there talking with people and checking out the latest happenings and trends in the small business world.  Then I’ll write about them here on Small Business Trends.

Please check back for my series on National Small Business Week to start Sunday evening, May 23rd, and continue during the week.

I’m going to try to get to as many of the official events in Washington as possible.  If you happen to be in Washington, D.C. attending National Small Business Week, please look me up.  I’d really like to meet you in person.

Webinar

Then on Thursday we’ll be capping off Small Business Week activities with a webinar over at Startup Nation, with Rich Sloane, Founder of Startup Nation, and Barbara Corcoran, the real estate expert for NBC Today.  We’ll share some advice about innovating even during this lackluster economy.  The webinar is complimentary, but you must register in advance (takes just a minute or two).

Twitter Coverage

If you’re one of the Twitterati, I’ll be tweeting throughout the week, over at @Smallbiztrends on Twitter.  You can follow along on Twitter by searching for the hashtag #DYMOandENDICIA or #SBW. Or see all references at TweetGrid.

    Looking forward to the read on your findings this week. I am sure the challenges in the US are the same as they are here in Ireland and will be interested to see how small business is getting on.
