In the world of business, the word "startup" goes beyond a company just getting off the ground. The term startup is also associated with a business that is typically technology oriented and has high growth potential. Startups have some unique struggles, especially in regard to financing. That’s because investors are looking for the highest potential return on investment, while balancing the associated risks.

MILWAUKEE—For more than 51 years, the U.S. Small Business Administration, both here in Wisconsin and nationally, has celebrated America’s 32 million small businesses and their economic and community impacts during National Small Business Week in May.  The SBA presents awards in 53 states and territories to small businesses and small business champions that exemplify the drive, determination, and engagement of this country’s entrepreneurs.

For over 50 years, National Small Business Week has served as our nation’s salute to small business owners. Many household names were previous National Small Business Week award winners, including Ben and Jerry’s, Callaway Golf, Chobani Yogurt, Dogfish Head Brewing Company and Tom’s of Maine.
