Celebrating 31 Days of Small Business!
Each year, the Small Business Administration (SBA) designates the first week in May as 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 as Small Business Month with an official proclamation by Mayor Vi Lyles.
We recognize the entrepreneurial spirit of our community and honor all small businesses and entrepreneurs who play a pivotal role in strengthening our local economy. Additionally, this year we will recognize small businesses who navigated the coronavirus pandemic while exhibiting leadership in supporting their employees and community.
