Since 1963, National Small Business Week has celebrated small business for helping to grow the economy, create jobs, and foster innovation.

America’s 30 million small businesses are central to our economy and our communities. Their courageous innovation makes our cities and towns vibrant places to live, work, and raise families. Small businesses employ almost 59 million workers, more than one-third of our country’s labor force. These companies foster environments that reward problem solving and accountability, enabling workers to develop skills and valuable hands-on experience that propel their careers.

The success of our small businesses depends on leadership and vision from all perspectives and backgrounds. Approximately 10 million American small businesses are women-owned; 29 percent are minority-owned; and nearly 10 percent are veteran-owned.

Small business owners create jobs, foster innovation, and make our community unique. We encourage everyone in the Kenosha Area to support small businesses and shop local!

May 5-11 is National Small Business Week!
