Congratulations From Seth A. Goodall

Seth Goodall-9930RHRI would like to give my enthusiastic congratulations to all the 2016 Small Business Award Winners for Rhode Island.

Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation declaring National Small Business Week to recognize the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs who create nearly two out of every three net new jobs each year.

Our country was founded by risk-taking pioneers in search of new horizons. More than two centuries later, what sets America apart in the world is the willingness of our entrepreneurs to take risks. Small businesses allow Americans to be their own boss and improve their lot in life through hard work.

The SBA is dedicated to helping these risk takers achieve goals and improve the American economy. As SBA’s New England Regional Administrator, I am pleased to be part of the small business story in Rhode Island. Whether you are seeking financing or government contracting opportunities, education and technical assistance, looking to expand your business by exporting to foreign markets, or trying to make sense of federal or state regulations, the SBA and the team at the Rhode Island District Office are available to help you.

Congratulations again to all the award winners!


Seth A. Goodall
