May 2, 2022 (Newark, NJ) – The New Jersey Small Business Development Centers network (NJSBDC), also known as America’s Small Business Development Centers – New Jersey, is celebrating small businesses with comprehensive and engaging programs to enhance small businesses and entrepreneurs for National Small Business Week, between May 2 – 7, 2022.
National Small Business Week was created over 50 years ago by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to recognize the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.
“At the NJSBDC, we literally devote every moment to helping small businesses but we love this week so much because the national focus is on small businesses. So, it’s a great time to do something special for them”. says NJSBDC CEO and State Director, Kelly Brozyna.
For the past two years, National Small Business Week was celebrated on an augmented schedule in September due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, this year marks the return of the week in early May. This year will also mark the return back to being celebrated for a full week in early May.
The NJSBDC network will be presenting various programs to continue helping businesses thrive. Below is a list of programs that the NJSBDC will be presenting during National Small Business Week:
