Did you know that April 29th – May 5th is National Small Business Week? National Small Business Week recognizes the important contributions of America's entrepreneurs and small business owners. This event, hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), is all about recognizing prominent small businesses across the country. You can find small business events taking place around Illinois with the Illinois workNet Event Calendar, and throughout the U.S. with the SBA Events Page for National Small Business Week.
Illinois workNet knows that running your own business takes time, dedication, and a lot of hard work. Every day small business owners are helping create more jobs, growing a business, and cultivating innovation; and that is why we do our best to offer as many great resources as we can to help make your job just a little bit easier. Our resources can be used by new business owners, those interested in starting their own business or growing their businesses, entrepreneurs, individuals working with small businesses, and more. Below is a list of resources Illinois workNet has put together for our Illinois Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs:
If you run a small business, Small Business Week is a great time to run discounts and promotions. This is a good way to reward customers who support small companies like your own. If you are not a small business owner, you can still celebrate small business week in a variety of ways. These include getting involved with a small business, shopping at small businesses, or simply getting the word out about some of the great small business located near you.
