Springfield Small Business Week
Springfield Small Business Week is part of National Small Business Week and is dedicated to recognizing small business owners and entrepreneurs in Springfield, Missouri.
Small businesses are critical to our community and continued growth. They create jobs, drive economic activity and make our city special. Our community is fortunate to have a rich history of entrepreneurship and innovation. We look forward to seeing what our city’s business owners accomplish next.
National Small Business Week
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the important contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.
More than half of all Americans own or work for a small business. Small businesses create almost two of every three new jobs created in the United States each year. It’s a privilege to celebrate them during Small Business Week.
