SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman announced that National Small Business Week will be held on April 30 to May 6, 2023. During the week, the SBA recognizes the hard work, ingenuity, and dedication of America’s small businesses, and celebrates their contributions to the economy. This year marks the return of the in-person awards ceremonies in Washington, D.C., for the first time since 2019, including the National Small Business Person of the Year award. After the awards, Guzman will visit four cities and meet with local business leaders. The cities she will visit will be St. Louis, Minneapolis, Phoenix, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
