Small Business Week

DC Small Business Week 2024 is April 28th – May 4th

(But we’ll be celebrating the entire month of May!)

Annually during the first week of May, CNHED, along with our member organizations, District agency partners, and the entire small business community recognizes and celebrates National Small Business Week in the District of Columbia.

Since 2016, the District has observed this weeklong celebration highlighting the impact of entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. #DCSmallBizWeek is more than just an opportunity to recognize and celebrate our small businesses, but also a call to action to actively support them. Join us in our commitment to supporting small and local businesses, and ensuring a strong economic future for our communities.

Together, we can Keep DC Strong by supporting our local businesses.
