Coinciding with National Small Business Saturday (Nov 28th), DeKalb County United will celebrate small local businesses right up to Christmas. Every week we will be highlighting a local small business through our social media platforms, and encouraging you take advantage of the offers being made by them.
“Small Business Month is an opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners in DeKalb County,” said Chairman John Hall. “With so much of DeKalb's businesses considered small businesses, not only is this community an essential part of the county's economic vitality, they help the area a great place to live.”
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration website: “More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st Century jobs, drive innovation and increase America’s global competitiveness.”
