“In his proclamation declaring May 12-16 as National Small Business Week, President Barack Obama called small businesses “the lifeblood of our economy, employing half of our country’s workforce and creating nearly two out of every three new American jobs.” (CNBC).

Hosted in select cities each year, the SBA uses this opportunity as a forum to foster and assist small businesses around the U.S. This year, San Francisco, Kansas City, Boston and Washington D.C. were the top cities chosen to host this year’s events. If you happen to reside in or close to one of these cities, take a moment to attend, learn and use the knowledge the government is offering to further your business opportunity.
