Salute to Small Business


2020 Salute to Small Business has been moved online. Please register below.


Get Connected. Get Honored. 

The South Carolina Salute to Small Business is the Palmetto State’s annual National Small Business Week event. The mission of the event is to connect the state's small businesses to new opportunities and resources and to honor South Carolina's top small businesses and small business advocates. Attend all or part of the programming – tickets are available for the Procurement Matchmaker Session, the Luncheon, or the full day.

About the Awards:

Each year, at the Salute to Small Business, we partner with the Small Business Administration (SBA), the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the South Carolina Small Business Development Centers, SC SCORE and the SC Research Authority to recognize local small business leaders in several categories. Each award nomination undergoes a strenuous clearance and review process, ensuring that our winners are truly extraordinary.
