National Entrepreneurship Week is Back, and It’s Better Than Ever

February 21, 2017

On Feb. 20, we kick off a full week of free workshops, content, webcasts, events and more. Get the details.

Small businesses account for 55 percent of employment in the US, according to the Small Business Administration. And the 28 million small business owners and entrepreneurs in the US are at the forefront of innovation, fueling growth and creating jobs across the nation. That’s something I’m looking forward to celebrating during the 2017 National Entrepreneurship Week.

On Feb. 20, we kick off a full week of free workshops, content, webcasts, events and more from a large community of supporters including: Wix, Yelp, LinkedIn, Dun & Bradstreet, and many more.

A calendar of our most highly-anticipated activities can be found at Check for regular updates, resources, exciting new content and special offers throughout the week. Join in the conversation on Twitter by following #WININBIZ and tweet me @Cindy_Bates to share how your business is getting involved in National Entrepreneurship Week.

We encourage you to boost your business productivity by taking advantage of the specials and discounts offered by many of our National Entrepreneurship Week supporters.
