This week, in support of U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week, Mayor John J. Tecklenburg will hold a series of meetings with local small business owners and organizations to discuss their strengths, challenges and opportunities for the city to help facilitate their success.

“It’s important year-round, but especially during Small Business Week, for us to recognize the role of local small businesses in strengthening both our local community and our economy. These entrepreneurs and small business owners are creating jobs and driving innovation right here in Charleston,” said Mayor Tecklenburg. “During small business week, the city will kick-off our renewed focus on collaborating with local small business owners and entrepreneurs to determine ways the city can help foster small business success, growth and innovation.”

Tuesday, May 2, Mayor Tecklenburg will participate in the “Haus Warming” of Hausful, a new locally owned home goods store in West Ashley.

Thursday, May 4, Mayor Tecklenburg will attend the King Street Marketing Group Small Business Lunch at Halls, where he will introduce the guest speaker, Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page.

Friday, May 5, a number of small business owners and advocates have been invited to meet with Mayor Tecklenburg for a roundtable discussion.

In addition to these events, the city is also proud to recognize two local small businesses that are receiving awards from the Small Business Administration. Martha Landao Tran, CEO of Martha HRconsulting, LLC, based in West Ashley is being awarded the SC Minority Small Business Person of the Year and the LDC, which is receiving awards for #1 in Number and #1 in Dollar Volume of SBA Microloans for 2016.

During Small Business Week, citizens are encouraged to shift their attention to buying, hiring and investing locally.
