“…small businesses have always been a vital part of our country’s economy. As outlets for creativity and ingenuity, small businesses do more than create jobs and foster growth — they represent the spirit that has always driven our Nation forward. Throughout National Small Business Week, we celebrate the irreplaceable role these enterprises play in our national life by pledging to support them and equip them with the tools and resources they need to succeed.”
National Small Business Week, is the perfect opportunity for the U.S. Small Business Administration, to highlight the impact small business owners have on our U.S. economy… By creating jobs, driving innovation, and increasing America’s global competitiveness across the globe.
