Small-Business award season is here!
In the lead-up to National Small Business Week (NSBW) April 30 – May 2, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) announced this week their Resource Partners of the Year awards.
SBA Resource Partners—which include Small Business Development Centers, SCORE offices and more, are funded in part by the SBA, and provide America's small businesses with technical assistance, training, and access to capital.
A record-breaking 10.5 million Americans applied to start a business since 2020 – more than any two years on record.
The Resource Partner Awards are just a few of the many awards SBA will be giving out in coming weeks to recognize small businesses, small-business champions and small-business service providers. The awardees will be honored at a ceremony during National Small Business Week.
NSBA is beginning its own awards process, the Lew Shattuck Small Business Advocate of the Year awards – learn more here.
