SMALL BUSINESS WEEK: St. Pete's Resilient Entrepreneurial Spirit
St. Petersburg is officially designating the week of October 19 – 23 as Small Business Week!
St. Pete Small Business Week is a locally recognized week-long event to celebrate local business growth and the diverse voices in entrepreneurship. Diversity, in every sense of the word, creates a healthy, successful economy and is good for business. The event will offer several business growth resources to small business owners, including webinars, video conferences, free giveaways, a startup pitch competition, and more.
Small businesses are the heart of St. Pete! Our community recognizes the critical contributions of our entrepreneurs and small business owners. During these uncertain times, it is crucial to recognize, support and celebrate all small business owners.
The Greenhouse, along with our partners, stands proudly with St. Pete Small Business. This week provides the opportunity to highlight the impacts of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners and small business champions around St. Petersburg.
2020 has not been easy. Things are changing faster than ever before, with uncertainty looming. Our small businesses are working hard to be nimble, responsive and forward-thinking to evolve in a way to meet the changing landscape and continue to serve clients, the embodiment of the entrepreneurial spirit and the backbone of what makes St. Pete so special.
| 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.
We will have events and activities planned throughout the week, including local small business spotlights of those who have proven their resiliency efforts during this time. Interested in potentially participating as a spotlight business?
How is your business dealing with the pandemic disruption and what the community can offer to help overcome the challenges your business is facing? We want to hear directly from our business owners about their challenges, pivots and plans to move through this period.
