Registration Opens for National Small Business Week Virtual Summit, “Building a Better America Through Entrepreneurship”
Today, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) announced that registration for its 2022 National Small Business Week Virtual Summit, “Building a Better America Through Entrepreneurship,” is now open. This year’s National Small Business Week (NSBW), 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.
During National Small Business Week, the SBA will hold its NSBW Virtual Summit from May 2-5, 2022, in cosponsorship with SCORE. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. Visit online at National Small Business Week 4-Day Virtual Summit Registration (onlinexperiences.com) to register.
In a new video, also released today alongside its NSBW events registration opening, the SBA spotlighted the tenacity and contributions of America’s diverse entrepreneurs. They have played an integral role in powering our nation’s historic economic comeback and navigated challenges from various variant waves, supply chain disruptions, and inflation, as we pivot and continue building a better America. The American entrepreneurial spirit has grown stronger – new business applications grew by nearly 30 percent during the pandemic, with 5.4 million applications in 2021 alone.
