National Small Business Week


Every year we come together to celebrate National Small Business Week, sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

National Small Business Week is May 5–11, 2019.

The national event recognizes the essential contributions of America’s small business owners and entrepreneurs to our nation’s economy. From dreaming big to starting and growing their own ventures, small business owners are the force behind the creation of about two-thirds of all new jobs in the United States.

Entrepreneurs drive innovation, foster healthy competition, and inspire the next generation of small business owners.

At GoDaddy, we love celebrating entrepreneurs by telling their stories, sharing their insights with other small business owners, and offering them resources and tools to start, grow and manage their ventures.

The resources on this page are aimed at inspiring your entrepreneurial journey and helping you nurture the seed of a dream into a thriving small business:
