Governor Greg Abbott today invited all Texans to celebrate the unique role small businesses play in the economic resurgence in communities throughout the state of Texas as he issued a proclamation officially designating May 9–15 as Small Business Week in Texas.

“An amazing 99.8% of businesses in the Lone Star State are small businesses. They are the heart of every Texas community, and their continuing resilience drives local job creation and fuels our mighty economy,” said Governor Abbott. “Men and women willing to take a risk, to dig deep into their own pockets and stake their future on an idea, have long written the story of Texas. That pioneering spirit in our small town downtowns to our big city centers still fuels our shared prosperity today. As we unleash the Texas economy, I am proud to celebrate small business growth in Texas. When small businesses succeed, Texas succeeds.”

Governor Abbott announced the next Governor’s Small Business Webinar, “Starting a Business in Texas,” Thursday, May 13, 2021, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., CT. For more information and registration, visit: https://gov.texas.gov/business/event/governors-small-business-webinar-start-a-business-in-texas
