Small Business Week Background
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. This year represents the 51st Anniversary of the Small Business Administration’s national effort to recognize Small Business Week.
