National (Global) Small Business Week

Yesterday marked the beginning of National Small Business Week, a five-day event intended to spotlight the successes of America's entrepreneurs and draw policymakers' attention to the challenges confronting them.

Here's an excerpt on what they say about going global:
"What they'll get is the chance to hear from key leaders on some of the critical issues impacting small business, such as doing business with the government and going global," said Susan Walthall, chairwoman of National Small Business Week and the SBA's acting deputy associate administrator for entrepreneurial development. "We're going to cover those two areas, as well as health care and the energy challenge."
Maybe next year they will rename it: National Global Small Business Week.

Congratulations to all the award winners!
