Categories: Industry News + Updates
Today kicks off Small Business Week, and moreover, it’s SBW’s 50th Anniversary! Here at Inspire Commerce we have the privilege of working with small businesses around the country, and it is truly our pleasure to be a part of their growth and success.
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.
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.
