For more than 50 years, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

 

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.

 

Help celebrate the week and join us May 6-11 for a week of events!

 

Thank you to this week’s partners: SBDC, Women’s Business Center, Score, SBA, Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce & Salt Lake Chamber
