A Special Message from SBA Administrator Karen Mills
It’s that time of year again! Today, SBA joins the entire Obama Administration in wishing a very happy National Small Business Week to the more than 28 million American small businesses, their employees and the people they serve! National Small Business Week is a public-private partnership to honor small businesses from communities across America.
Small businesses all over the country continue to thrive, driving the national recovery and creating an American economy built to last. Building on that momentum, President Obama and I visited Taylor Gourmet, a local small business in Washington, to discuss his “to do” list for Congress to create jobs and help restore middle class security last week and kick-off National Small Business Week.
