We're encouraging people nationwide to show their support of small businesses on social media by posting about their favorite small business using the hashtag #SmallBizSalute.
Attend a Small Biz Salute Event
Throughout the month there will be special networking events in Minneapolis, Nashville, and Houston and a pitch competition that will give local small business owners a chance to win $5,000!

The best pitch will win $5,000. Full rules, eligibility, and the submission form are available online or you can apply the day of at the venue.
