Announcing the 2011 Small Business Week Awards Winners
Six Inland Empire companies were recognized as leading business.
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has proclaimed National Small Business Week to recognize the importance of America’s small businesses. SBA district offices throughout the nation and its territories host and participate in a variety of events and functions to honor the crucial role small businesses play in our communities and award deserving businesses in various categories. Award winners from each category then compete at the state, regional, and national level. Winners of the National Small Business Week Awards participate in the festivities in Washington, D.C. as the President salutes their contributions to the nation’s economy.
