Small Business Month May 2019 in the City of Charlotte

Celebrating 31 Days of Small Business!

Each year, the Small Business Administration (SBA) designates the first week in May, (May 5th – 11th), as the SBA National Small Business Week, but here in Charlotte, we will be celebrating all month long. The City of Charlotte and its small business resource partners have declared May to be Small Business Month 2019, with an official proclamation by Mayor Vi Lyles.

We recognize the entrepreneurial spirit of our community and honor all small businesses and entrepreneurs that play a pivotal role in strengthening our local economy. To stay connected to all of the highlights and happenings, be sure to join us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. Celebrate with us all month long using the hashtags #31DaysofBiz and #CLTMonthofBiz.
