NATIONAL SMALL BUSINESS WEEK: Building a Better America Through Entrepreneurship

May 2 - 6, 2022

About National 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.

National Small Business Week, May 2-6, 2022, is a time to honor and celebrate America’s entrepreneurs and innovative startups. This year’s theme, “Building a Better America through Entrepreneurship,” celebrates the resiliency and tenacity of America’s entrepreneurs who are doing their part to power our nation’s historic economic comeback. 

Join the SBA during the NSBW virtual summit as they share tools and information that entrepreneurs need to further power our economic growth, strengthen our supply chains, and deliver the products and services Americans depend on every day.

   | 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.
