On April 25th, the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors presented a resolution recognizing the 2nd Annual Capital Region Small Business Week, a local effort  to celebrate the entrepreneurs and small businesses within the Sacramento region.

As part of this recognition, the City of Elk Grove was also honored for helping organize and plan the week-long event, which includes many workshops, seminars, and networking opportunities designed to connect small businesses with local resources. Small businesses play an important role in stimulating economic growth and creating jobs, which is why the City offers several incentives to help these businesses meet their start-up or expansion goals.

This year's Capital Region Small Business Week begins on May 1st and ends on May 5th. A full schedule of the events can be found here.
