Small business appreciation week to take place April 30 – May 6, 2017
The Colorado Small Business Development Center (COSBDC) along with several statewide small businesses, community organizations and financial institutions, launched a website in honor of National Small Business Week in Colorado.
Coloradosmallbizweek.com is where Coloradans can find all the events and celebrations in honor of small businesses in specific communities across the State. Celebrated during the first week of May, this year the US Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week occurs during April 30 – May 6, 2017.
“Small Business Week highlights the impact of entrepreneurs and small business owners across communities and the Colorado economy,” said Stephanie Copeland, Executive Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. “With over 560,000 small businesses in Colorado and half of our workforce employed by small businesses, this week will celebrate their critical contributions with workshops, events and festivities to celebrate Colorado’s entrepreneurial spirit.”
The www.coloradosmallbizweek.com website features a calendar of the events, workshops, webinars and celebrations that will take place throughout Colorado during small business week. Events will continue to be added by participating organizations leading up to National Small Business Week. Additionally, Coloradans can submit their own small business training events and celebrations to the website.
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has declared a National Small Business Week to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners across the nation.
