"During this time, SCORE chapters nationwide will celebrate Small Business Week with small-business fairs, seminars, networking events and award ceremonies". "Entrepreneurship is at the heart of a successful small business-the drive to own and grow a business through your own efforts", said Sue Steen, Servpro Industries, Inc., chief executive officer.
John Hickson with the School of Business at Salisbury University says small businesses with 10 or fewer employees make up more than half of the businesses in Maryland. The more we are able to help them connect, the better they can grow their business. The campaign will run through June and culminate with an interactive digital art display, created by user generated content from small businesses and consumers who support shopping small. A Local Small Business Walking Tour will be held May 2.
Webinar: Email Content in 15 Minutes or Less In addition to the in-person events, Constant Contact will co-sponsor a free educational webinar on May 4 th entitled, "Write Your Email Content in 15 Minutes or Less".
The East Kentucky Small Business Development Centers are located in Morehead, Pikeville and Ashland. The webinar is free of charge, but registration space is limited on a first-come, first-served basis.
Previewing Small Business Week
Small businesses unable to attend one of the network's events during National Small Business Week are encouraged to view the Florida SBDC's on-demand training videos.
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.
"It's encouraging to see more small businesses feeling optimistic about their performance and future prospects, particularly women and younger business owners who represent increasingly significant segments impacting our local and national economies", Buck Stinson, head of small business card at Capital One, said in a press release about the study. Call the chamber at 479-394-2912 for more information.
