Small Businesses. Big Contributions.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. More than half of Americans either own a small business or work for one. And small businesses create roughly 2 out of every 3 new jobs in this country each year.

To recognize those contributions, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is hosting a number of events during National Small Business Week, which is May 5th-11th this year. Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Join the conversation on Twitter with #SmallBusinessWeek.
  • Watch live events on the SBA’s Facebook page.
  • Register for a hackathon in Washington, D.C.
