The head of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet, has announced Miami will be the “Kick Off” city for this year’s National Small Business Week to take place May 4-8. This year’s theme will be “SBA: Dream Big, Start Small.”
Contreras-Sweet will highlight the week with small business events beginning in Miami, followed by Los Angeles, San Antonio, New York City and culminating in Washington, DC, where national winners will be recognized. Additionally, recognition events throughout SBA’s 10 regions and 68 districts will be held throughout the months of May and June.
“I’m excited to see Miami selected as the lead city to start National Small Business Week,” said SBA South Florida District director Francisco “Pancho” Marrero. “This selection will give us the opportunity to spotlight Miami small businesses and highlight some of our district small business persons of the year award winners.”
Every year since 1963 SBA takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from across the nation through National Small Business Week. As events are finalized more details will be posted on www.sba.gov/smallbusinessweek.
