About National Small Business Week

For over 50 years, The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has celebrated National Small Business Week (NSBW). This year, NSBW begins on April 30th and ends on May 6th. NSBW recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Register for the NSBW Free Virtual Summit on May 2nd and May 3rd. This two-day event, hosted by the SBA and co-hosted by SCORE, will include educational sessions, networking, and expert resources.

   | More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business; they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.

National Small Business Week in St. Pete

The Greenhouse joins in the national effort to help America’s small businesses do what they do best – grow their business, create jobs, and ensure that our communities remain as vibrant tomorrow as they are today. In May, the Greenhouse and our community partners will host hybrid workshops dedicated to helping our entrepreneurs and small business owners START, GROW, and make their businesses THRIVE. 

To demonstrate our appreciation for small businesses, The Greenhouse will offer a business spotlight to every Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and Storefront business owner who attends an in-person workshop during the first week of May.  When SBE and Storefront owners sign in, please notify The Greenhouse Navigator that you would like to take advantage of this opportunity. Everyone, regardless of their business stage, is welcome and encouraged to attend. 


The Greenhouse and the St. Pete community will continue to support small businesses with specific themes each month throughout the year! Join us for the LOCAL St. Pete Small Business Week, returning later this year.  Follow us on socials and bookmark this page for ongoing Small Business opportunities throughout the year.
