From mom-and-pop shops to tech startups, small businesses are critical to the growth and vitality of our nation and the Research Triangle region. They create two-thirds of the new jobs in the U.S. each year. The Small Business Administration has highlighted the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs and small businesses since 1963.

In the Triangle, we are celebrating Small Business Week by offering events and resources to support the organizations that are important economic drivers for our region. Included on this site are a listing of events happening in our area, resources for our business owners and entrepreneurs, and information about the influential economic impact these companies have on our region.
