Springfield Small Business Week is part of National Small Business Week taking place April 29 – May 5, 2018. It’s a week to recognize small business owners and entrepreneurs in Springfield, MO.
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.
Springfield Small Business Week is an opportunity to highlight all the great, hard-working small business owners and entrepreneurs in our community.
