WASHINGTON — The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has opened registration for its 2022 National Small Business Week Virtual Summit, “Building a Better America Through Entrepreneurship.”
According to the SBA, this year’s National Small Business Week (NSBW), to be held May 1-7, 2022, will acknowledge small businesses from across the country for their resilience, ingenuity, and creativity. It will also recognize SBA partners for their involvement in entrepreneurial development, disaster recovery, government contracting, financial development, and overall support for small businesses and entrepreneurship.
The virtual summit will take place May 2-5, 2022, and is co-sponsored with the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE), a nonprofit organization, dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentorship.
Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
The SBA reports that this year’s NSBW virtual summit will feature access to federal resources, educational workshops, and networking to help our nation’s 32.5 million small businesses pivot, grow, and seize new opportunities. The NSBW will offer entrepreneurs across America in rural, suburban, and urban communities tools, information, and access to resources to help them achieve business ownership and success.
The 2022 Small Business Persons of the Year award winners from each state, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, will be honored, as well, and the SBA will announce the 2022 National Small Business Person of the Year from among the state winners represented.
