WASHINGTON – Today, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, Administrator Linda McMahon announced that this year’s National Small Business Week will be held from May 5-11, 2019. 

Administrator McMahon will start the week in Washington, D.C., where she will recognize and award outstanding small business owners and SBA Resource Partners from around the nation. She will continue the week meeting with local entrepreneurs, visiting small businesses, and holding roundtable discussions with community leaders in Florida, Texas and Utah.  

“We are extremely proud to honor America’s most successful small businesses during National Small Business Week,” McMahon said. “These small business owners have shown tremendous dedication and perseverance.
