Giving Entrepreneurs the Opportunity to Learn, Network and Share Stories

The event presents the perfect opportunity for small business owners and entrepreneurs to come together and learn, network and share their own stories about building resilient and successful businesses.

In his proclamation declaring May 1 – 7 as National Small Business Week, President Biden spoke about the value small businesses play in the US economy and how Small Business Week celebrates the achievements of entrepreneurs and small businesses.

“For generations, small businesses across America have shaped and embodied our Nation’s entrepreneurial spirit and driven our economy forward.  Today, more than 32 million small businesses employ almost half of America’s workforce and represent the heart and soul of countless communities.  During National Small Business Week, we celebrate America’s small businesses and their enormous contributions to American life and prosperity,” said President Biden.
