Small Business Week

The Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for Small Business Week awards

Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.

As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they are working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.

The Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for small businesses to be honored during the Chambers 3rd annual Small Business Week to be held May 1 – 5, 2017.
Small business success stories can be nominated in the following categories:
Small Business Person of the Year, Woman Owned Business of the Year, Small Business Exporter of the Year, and Emerging Small Business Person.
