The end of the year means a lot for small businesses. With so many restaurants and retail establishments being small entrepreneurial ventures, these businesses are competing with the “big guys” for holiday traffic. So, getting the attention they need and ensuring consumers think to shop small is an important endeavor. Thanks to amazing leaders like American Express, there is now an entire day dedicated to bringing attention to the importance of shopping small – Small Business Saturday. 

At the same time, the fourth quarter is a time that all small businesses are reflecting and revisiting their goals for the year, refocusing their strategy, and setting a plan for the next year. This includes business that are just getting started through to businesses that have been in operation for 20 plus years. As an organization entirely focused on the success of small businesses, COSE was inspired to create a week dedicated to helping these entrepreneurs and business owners connect to the resources, support, solutions and advice they need at this pivotal time of year.  

We couldn’t think of a better time to host this week specifically for small business than immediately following Small Business Saturday. There is already incredible momentum for small businesses out in the community and we want to leverage that excitement and energy to continue to celebrate entrepreneurship and solidify small business success well into the future.
