Started in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy, Small Business Week was originated to recognize small businesses’ contribution to America’s economic well being. Almost fifty years later, the program is still going strong, and has also made great strides in extending its digital reach. This year, The Small Business Administration has a number of ways for you keep your finger on the pulse of what’s going on, including:
• The SBA’s official twitter account, @SBAgov, will be live tweeting during panel discussions, speakers and networking events.
• All events will be webcasted live. Check out the SBA website for more information.
• The SBA will also post a highlight reel, complete with video and interviews after the program concludes. You view last year’s video here.
You can also check out the full agenda here. This year drew a diverse crowd of speakers, including members from the SBA, CEOs from Honest Tea and The American Red Cross and other esteemed entrepreneurs. We look forward to catching up on new trends and ongoing within the world of small business!
