Business Event: National Small Business Week Virtual Conference
Wednesday, September 23, 2020
For National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration is hosting an online conference. Learn new business strategies, meet other business owners from across the country and talk with industry experts.
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. This year is one unlike the half-century that has come before.
We are facing unique challenges together. However, American small businesses continue to play a central role in building a strong country, prepared for any obstacles in the future.
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create nearly two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
The virtual event, rescheduled from May due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be held September 22-24. This year’s National Small Business Week activities will include numerous educational panels providing retooling and innovative practices for entrepreneurs as our nation’s small businesses look to pivot and recover toward a stronger economy.
NSBW Virtual Conference Schedule:
Tuesday, September 22
Opening ceremony and presentation of the National Small Business Award Winners, including the National Small Business Person of the Year.
Wednesday, September 23 & Thursday, September 24
Educational presentations and panel discussions that help both new and existing businesses to recover, adapt, and innovate in this challenging time.
