National Small Business Week 2023

National Small Business Week is celebrated during the first week of May every year. It’s an exciting opportunity for business owners to come together, share ideas and celebrate their incredible contributions to society. With small businesses accounting for more than 99% of all businesses in the United States and employing nearly half of the country's workforce1, they are truly the backbone of our economy.

National Small Business Week 2023 will be an important time for business owners to connect with their peers, learn from each other’s experiences and celebrate successes. There will be a wide range of events, workshops and networking opportunities designed to help develop the skills and sharpen knowledge on topics such as e-commerce, digital marketing and fraud awareness.

One of the key themes of Small Business Week 2023 will be the importance of embracing technology and digital transformation. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the shift toward online commerce, and small business owners who are able to adapt to this new reality have a better chance to be more successful in the long run.

Another important theme of National Small Business Week 2023 will be the role small businesses can play in creating a more sustainable future. As consumers become more environmentally conscious, small businesses have an opportunity to lead the way in adopting sustainable practices and reducing their environmental impact, including implementing energy-efficient technologies and creating waste reduction strategies.

National Small Business Week 2023 promises to be an exciting time for small business owners across the country. From workshops and seminars to awards ceremonies and networking events, this week provides a time to connect with peers, learn new skills and celebrate successes. By embracing these tools and resources, small businesses can continue to grow and thrive in the years ahead, creating a brighter future for themselves, their communities, and the broader economy.
