"I am thrilled to host SBA's virtual National Small Business Week ceremony and provide this opportunity to recognize inspiring entrepreneurs from across the country for their innovation, and in many cases this year, resilience," SBA Administrator Carranza said. "This year, we will spotlight America's outstanding small businesses and their stories of perseverance and their ability to pivot and overcome adversity. This event will also feature many educational forums that will inspire entrepreneurs around the country as they recover and sustain their operations."
 
The virtual event, rescheduled from May due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be held Sept. 22-24. 
 
This year's National Small Business Week activities will include numerous educational panels providing retooling and innovative practices for entrepreneurs as our nation's small businesses look to pivot and recover toward a stronger economy. The event will recognize the national award winners, including the naming of this year's National Small Business Person of the Year.
 
National Small Business Week will also recognize small business advocates for their involvement in disaster recovery, government contracting, and their support for small businesses and entrepreneurship.  Awards will be presented to SBA partners in financial and entrepreneurial development, including top SCORE Chapter, Small Business Development Center, Women's Business Center, and Veterans Business Outreach Center.
