Highlights From the #WinInBiz National Entrepreneurship Week Twitter Chat

It’s a special week for entrepreneurs around the U.S.

National Entrepreneurship Week is a weeklong celebration for entrepreneurs and business owners. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and other partners have used the week as an opportunity to put out various resources, events and other offers to help business owners continue growing their ventures.

Throughout the week, keep your eyes on the US SMB Blog for daily content updates from Microsoft Vice President of Small-to-Midsized Business Cindy Bates. Also stay tuned to Barry Moltz’ Your Business Unstuck site, as he is posting a different community partner interview each day.

Tuesday (Feb. 21) saw the kickoff event in NYC! It included a livestreamed event on the new website. The event included a group of panelists and opened with remarks from Congressman Hakeem Jeffries.

A complete rundown of the week’s events can be found here, including a panel on Women in Business on Wednesday at 6 pm ET and the Creative Live session streaming from Seattle on Friday beginning at 11:30 am PT.

But you don’t necessarily have to attend an in-person event to get something out of National Entrepreneur Week. In some cases, the greatest resources for business owners looking to learn and grow can actually be their fellow entrepreneurs, which is where a recent Twitter chat fits in.

Microsoft’s Cindy Bates (@cindy_bates), Microsoft in Business (@MSFT_Business) and Small Business Trends CEO Anita Campbell (@smallbiztrends) chatted with other entrepreneurs about business ownership and the resources that they would share with others. The Twitter chat took place Monday and was sponsored by Microsoft (@Microsoft).
