This year's National Small Business Week begins this May, and it's a great opportunity to think about improving your business. The Small Business Administration recently referenced this important event, noting in a press release that this year's theme will be "Dream Big, Start Small," beginning with a special launch event in the nation's capitol. In addition to honoring small businesses in general, the release specifically called out "women entrepreneurs, millennial entrepreneurs, immigrant entrepreneurs and veterans."
As it does every year, the Administration will use this time to highlight small business contributions. Chase for Business will be the presenter sponsor and one of the many companies involved with the event. Since it represents a government effort to better know small businesses, those that need to improve can try to stand out from the rest of the community and build a path for growth during the rest of the year.
Writing about last year's Small Business Week in 2015, Catherine Clifford noted that businesses could pay attention to the different events available on a national and local stage.
"Businesses could pay attention to the different events available on a national and local stage."
"The national events with the SBA administrator tend to take the show spotlight, but there are locally organized SBA events all throughout the country happening throughout the next couple of weeks," she wrote. She also added that the Administrator's tour of the country will give residents a chance to take part.
Certain alternative financing options may be more favorable for small ventures than others. As the country pays attention to smaller entrepreneurs, those same people can start working with experienced advisors to find loan programs that will give them the resources they need.
