Celebrating 31 Days of Small Business!
Each year, the Small Business Administration (SBA) designates the first week in May, (April 29 – May 5), 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 2018, 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 Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Celebrate with us all month long using the hashtags #31DaysofBiz and #CLTMonthofBiz.
What better way to celebrate Small Business Month than applauding our local small biz heroes? During CBR’s #31DaysofBiz, we’ll be featuring one business owner each day on our social media channels! Find these success stories by following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, or reading the full spotlight on our blog.
