Capital Region Small Business Week

Capital Region Small Business Week Returns in May, Bringing Business Networking to Sacramento

Sacramento, CA |  Sacramento Valley SBDC announced their participation as planners and hosts of Capital Region Small Business Week 2022, to take place May 2-7. Coinciding with National Small Business Week, Capital Region Small Business Week is the local series of educational, networking and celebratory events across the capital region.  With a week of virtual and in-person offerings, this year marks the first time the event has been held in full form since before the covid-19 pandemic.

The line-up of speakers reflects the vast knowledge and experience of the capital region’s small business ecosystem: The events of Capital Region Small Business Week will offer a diversity of perspectives on crucial small business topics–from taxes and accessing capital, to technological innovation and international business–from representatives of government agencies, higher education, startup networks and civil society.

In addition to educational events, Capital Region Small Business Week focuses on building connections within the region’s business landscape. With in-person mixers and matchmaking events, the week will put small business owners in contact with business development leaders to share perspectives and find opportunities for partnership.

We are hosting two events during Small Region Week. The Airport Rental Car Supplier Diversity Outreach and Business Resource Day will be held May 3rd from 10 am to noon. The Capital Summit will be held on May 5th from 1 pm to 3 pm. After the Summit, from 3-5 pm guests are invited to enjoy refreshments at Sacramento Valley SBDC’s new headquarter located at 1792 Tribute Road, Suite 455, Sacramento. Sign up on our website at:

These events align with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) National Small Business Week, which the SBA has designated for more than 50 years to recognize the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.
