In recognition of the small business community’s contribution to the American economy and society, the President of the United States designates one week each year as National Small Business Week. National Small Business Week 2016 will be celebrated the first week of May, 2016
Throughout Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration, Los Angeles District Office, in conjunction with public- and private-sector small business supporters, will host special events to honor and present awards to local entrepreneurs and those who support and champion small business.
The SBA Los Angeles District Office will recognize honorees in the following categories during its annual event in May, 2016.
“Our exceptional small businesses deserve the public recognition these awards afford,” said Los Angeles District Director Victor Parker.
“The SBA Small Business Awards help to single out champions of small business. These top entrepreneurs are the ones who think big, take risks and work hard to achieve the ‘American Dream,’ all while creating jobs and building up the economy,” added Parker.
“Individuals, fellow business owners, are strongly encouraged to nominate individuals deserving of these awards,” concluded Parker.
This is an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs, bankers, chambers of commerce and other community organizations to promote their own business, a client or even an employee. Nominations can be made by an individual or a business for an individual or a business.
