Website launched in honor of Colorado Small Business Week

Small business appreciation week to take place May 1-7, 2016
DENVER – Mon., April 18, 2016 – The Colorado Small Business Development Center (SBDC), along with several statewide small businesses, community organizations and financial institutions, today launched a new website in honor of this year’s Small Business Week. The website,, will serve as the one place where Coloradans can find all the events and celebrations in honor of small businesses in specific communities across the state.

Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has declared a National Small Business Week to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners across the nation. This year the US Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week is May 1-7, 2016.

“Small Business Week highlights the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners throughout Colorado,” said Fiona Arnold, Executive Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. “With over 560,000 small businesses in Colorado and half of our workforce employed by small businesses, this week will celebrate their critical contributions with workshops, events and festivities to celebrate Colorado’s entrepreneurial spirit.”

The website features a calendar of the events, workshops, webinars and celebrations that will take place throughout Colorado during small business week. Additionally, Coloradans can submit their own small business training events to the website.
