National Small Business Week honors America's 28 million small businesses and their entrepreneurial, innovative and resilient spirit that serves as the backbone of the American economy.
In making the announcement, SBA Administrator Linda McMahon said: "More than half of all Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of three net new jobs in the U.S. each year. I couldn't be prouder of all the awardees this year – they are working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America's global competitiveness. It is an honor during National Small Business Week to honor and celebrate their hard work and success."
"It's a pleasure to recognize the achievements of small business and the diversity and strength they bring to our economy, it's too bad we can't make every week Small Business week. It's a particular pleasure to recognize all the SBDC clients who are being recognized for their success. America's SBDCs are proud to be a part of their story and to help them make their dreams a reality. But don't forget that SBDCs are there for every small business, every week!" said Charles "Tee" Rowe, America's SBDC President & CEO.
