Celebrate National Small Business Week

Since 1963, the Small Business Administration has recognized outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners through National Small Business Week. This year, the Greater Pensacola Chamber and the Florida Small Business Development Center at the University of West Florida are teaming up to promote the positive impact of small businesses on the Pensacola community.

“National Small Business Week provides an opportunity to honor Northwest Florida small businesses for their crucial role in job creation and healthy economic growth,” said Greater Pensacola Chamber President and CEO Clay Ingram. “We are pleased to partner with the Florida SBDC at UWF to show our appreciation and commitment to putting small businesses first.”

National Small Business Week will be celebrated today through Saturday. This year’s theme is Dream Big, Start Small. The Chamber and the Florida SBDC at UWF encourage small businesses to share their success stories and photos on social media with the hashtags #DreamSmallBiz, #PcolaChamber and #FloridaSBDCUWF.

“The Florida SBDC at UWF team is committed to serving local small businesses in our community,” said Kelly Massey, regional director. “For the last six years, we have delivered over 56,689 hours of professional consulting to 13,147 entrepreneurs and small business owners in the Panhandle region. We intend to make those numbers soar even higher within the next six years.”
