A group of distinguished individuals joined the Small Business Association (SBA) and PayPal for a round-table discussion with California business leaders on small business growth as National Small Business Week kicked off in San Francisco on May 2.

“What a good start of National Small Business Week (NSBW) to have been joined by SBA Administrator Isabella Castillas Guzman,” said Cathy Adams, president of the Oakland African American Chamber of Commerce (OAACC). “It’s a great opportunity for all entrepreneurs.”

For more than 50 years, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has celebrated National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

NSBW 2022 celebrates the resiliency and tenacity of America’s entrepreneurs who are doing their part to power the nation’s historic economic comeback.

The Bay Area is a part of the NSBW bus tour where Guzman was scheduled to make stops in Denver, Colo.; Atlanta, Ga.; Columbia, S.C.; Richburg, S.C.; Charlotte, N.C.; Raleigh, N.C.; and Norfolk, Va.
