Small Business Week is here! From April 29 to May 5, we’re celebrating the determination and drive of the entrepreneurs who form the backbone of the U.S. economy. GECU applauds the dreamers who work hard to bring their vision to life by providing the jobs, goods and services that keep our economy rolling!
According to Forbes, two out of three new jobs in the U.S. are created by small businesses and one out of five small businesses are family-owned. Half of all small businesses are home-based. There’s a good chance that if you’re not a small-business owner, you know one, or have been employed by one.
DOING OUR PART
At GECU, we know what it takes to turn a dream into reality. Our Business Services department works with a number of small businesses, providing the resources they need to grow and succeed. We sponsor many events around the community with local chambers of commerce that help to support the business community, such as our annual Café y Pan Dulce networking breakfast.
