About the Annual Event

Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has declared National Small Business Week to formally recognize the important role and contributions of America's small businesses. National and local events recognize top entrepreneurs for their achievements, which includes those individuals and organizations who are champions for small business. This year's local event will be virtual due to COVID-19 and Bexar County safety measures.
