SF Small Business Week. Celebrate Small Business.


Congratulations to Our 2017 Small Business Week Honorees!

Every year during San Francisco Small Business Week, Mayor Ed Lee and the Board of Supervisors, the U.S. Small Business Administration and the San Francisco Economic Development Alliance come together to award and recognize small businesses who inspire others or exemplify excellence in their community. We would like to take a moment to congratulate all our 2017 Small Business Week Honorees.

We hope you’ll join us this week in honoring them as well as celebrating the numerous accomplishments and efforts of the thousands of other small businesses who continue to shape our communities and keep San Francisco a unique, thriving city!
