It’s the Small Business Association’s National Small Business Week, a time to spotlight small business achievements and their economic importance. Small businesses are a major contributor of new jobs and bring innovative approaches to meeting community needs. In fact, SBA data points to small businesses outperforming large firms in net job creation.
Beyond economic importance, small businesses are the types of enterprises that tell the story of a community and give it its flavor. Grow Waynesboro aims to recognize and support Waynesboro’s small businesses, not just during Small Business Week but year-round. Follow along with our Meet the Entrepreneurs blog where we highlight the folks who are contributing to a diversified economy in Waynesboro. Hear what motivated them to start their businesses, things they wished they had known when starting their venture, and why they chose Waynesboro as their home.
And if you’re someone who would like to start a small business of your own, get in touch with us. We’re here to support.
Also, watch for the upcoming launch of our How to Start a Small Business website, a step-by-step guide to the questions you need to ask, the process you need to follow, and the resources available to you along the way.
