National Small Business Week is Right Around the Corner

Jun 12, 2013

Posted by Javan Porter - If President Obama is the coach of the team for creating new jobs, his quarterback is small business. The coach may lay out the game plan but small businesses play the game. Small businesses have created two-thirds of new jobs in America. The President as the coach understands the importance of such a strong quarterback and has issued a proclamation announcing this year’s National Small Business Week for June 17th to 21st. Get more information about National Small Business Week here.

National Small Business Week consists of conferences throughout the country highlighting the achievement and importance of small business. The conferences will visit cities including Seattle, Dallas, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and finally Washington, D.C. The conferences allow small-business owners a chance to learn from experts and discuss issues amongst peers.

NFL Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton, a man that knows a little about excellent quarterback play, is among the list of speakers. The list ranges from Twitter creator, Jack Dorsey, to the leader of the Small Business Administration, Karen Mills. Check out the full list of speakers here. 

The NASE understands the pressure that comes with being the quarterback. We are working to protect small businesses. To help all of the members of our small-business team support each other, the NASE recently launched the Small Business Locator to help NASE Members and others connect with each other.
