Celebrate National Small Business Week

Recognize the hustle April 30 - May 5.

Did you know that more than 2/3 of new jobs created each year can be attributed to small business owners? Isn’t that phenomenal?

Beyond that, were you aware that more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business?

That’s why entrepreneurship should be celebrated every year – heck, every day.

National Small Business Week (NSBW) is April 30 – May 5, and that means it’s time to recognize these small businesses on a more national stage.  

Here at efactory, we offer tons of resources for small business owners, entrepreneurs and solopreneurs. It’s because we couldn’t be prouder of all the small business owners and the work they’ve done to imagine a new role for themselves and boost the economy.

All you need to do is sign up to secure your spot.
