The SBA’s National Small Business Week, a virtual event set for Sept. 22-24, will recognize how America’s small businesses have persevered through the coronavirus pandemic.

The celebration of small businesses was originally planned for May but was rescheduled due to the pandemic.

This year’s activities include several educational panels that will provide information on retooling and innovative practices for small businesses looking to pivot and grow stronger as the economy recovers.

“I am thrilled to host SBA’s virtual National Small Business Week ceremony and provide this opportunity to recognize inspiring entrepreneurs from across the country for their innovation, and in many cases this year, resilience,” said SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza.

“This year, we will spotlight America’s outstanding small businesses, their stories of perseverance, and their ability to pivot and overcome adversity. 

“This event will also feature many educational forums that will inspire entrepreneurs around the country as they recover and sustain their operations.”

National Small Business Week will also recognize small business advocates for their efforts in disaster recovery and government contracting, and for supporting small businesses and entrepreneurship. 

Awards will be presented to SBA partners in financial and entrepreneurial development, including top SCORE Chapter, Small Business Development Center, Women’s Business Center, and Veterans Business Outreach Center.
