For over 50 years, the president has singled out one week each year to shine a spotlight on the leaders and innovators of America's small businesses. That week, appropriately titled "National Small Business Week," is slated to be held May 4 through 8 this year in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Miami and San Antonio, with events also being live-streamed on the Small Business Administration's (SBA) website.
But as much as National Small Business Week is a celebration of those entrepreneurs across the country who have successfully realized their American dream of opening and running a business of their own, the events also pay tribute to the lenders who help make those dreams a reality. And it's with great pride and enthusiasm that we accept the SBA's recognition of Growth Capital Corp. as one of the top 10 SBA Community Advantage loan lenders in the nation!
The news was issued in a SBA press release, where the federal agency named the country's nine other top SBA Community Advantage lenders of the year, including:
- ACCION Texas, Inc. (TX)
- CDC Small Business Finance Corp. (CA)
- Eastern Maine Development Corp. (ME)
- Empire State CDC (NY)
- Mountain West Small Business Finance (UT)
- OBDC Small Business Finance (CA)
- PeopleFund (TX)
- Regional Business Assistance Corp. (NJ)
- Valley Economic Development Center (CA)
We'd also like to extend a congratulations of our own to Empire State CDC for winning National Small Business Week's first-ever Community Advantage Lender of the Year Award.
