What Is National Small Business Week?

What Is Small Business Week?

For more than 50 years, the U.S. Small Business Administration has celebrated National Small Business Week (NSBW), which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

As part of NSBW, the Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others who support entrepreneurship from all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. territories.

This year’s NSBW will recognize small businesses that have navigated the coronavirus pandemic while supporting their employees and communities.
