National Small Business week is this week, with activities beginning today. Did you know that more than half of all Americans either own or work for a small business? And small businesses create about two out of every three new jobs in the US each year. Referential, Inc. is a small business that’s proud to have created several new jobs thus far this year. Activities for this year’s National Small Business week will include forums discussing the small business landscape, business coaching services, matchmaking events as well as networking opportunities and award ceremonies. The week’s events culminate in Washington where the 2013 National Small Business Person of the Year will be announced.
In addition to the in-person events, National Small Business Week will also feature daily online forums that will focus on subjects such as exporting and access to capital. All events will be live-streamed on SBA’s website, www.sba.gov. Worth a look for all businesses, small and large.
