To participate, head over to Twitter at Noon, ET, and follow the hashtag #SmallBusinessWeek.


Small Business Week

Small Business Week is a big event, and if you have anything to do with small business-or you’re going to, it’s worth your time to participate.

For information on all the virtual events taking place next week, head over to the SBA website.

One more thing: The SBA team reached out to me (because I write a monthly article on franchising for their Industry Word blog), to see if I wanted to join in on May 4th. Well, I am going to participate, and I’ll be sharing a few of my own business tips.

In addition, dozens of other members of the small business community are joining in.

From SBA Administrator, Linda McMahon

The U.S. Small Business Administration is so proud to have been a part of small businesses’ success for 65 years. Since 1953, the SBA has been supporting entrepreneurs with the tools they need to succeed. The Agency – through its headquarters in Washington, DC; its 68 district offices nationwide; and resources partners like Small Business Development Centers, Women’s Business Centers, Veterans Business Opportunity Centers and SCORE chapters – serves entrepreneurs at every stage of their lifecycle. It guarantees loans for entrepreneurs who can’t get capital from other sources, mitigating a lender’s risk. It offers counseling on starting and scaling a business, from how to draft a business plan to how to export products overseas. It trains small businesses to compete for government contracts. And it helps those recovering from a declared disaster get back on their feet.”
