Jefferson City, MO – Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick today recognized Small Business Week and the contributions of Missouri’s small business owners to the state’s economy and their communities.

 

“As a business owner, I understand the hard work, sacrifice, and passion that goes into starting and building a business,” Treasurer Fitzpatrick said. “Over the past year, Missouri’s small businesses have weathered challenges and found creative solutions to keep their doors open and continue serving customers. I am happy to recognize their hard work and share a few small business stories this week.”

 

Throughout the week, Treasurer Fitzpatrick will highlight Missouri small businesses, their stories, and community contributions, across the official social media platforms. Featured businesses include:

 

·         Essner’s Custom Butchering, Scott City, MO

·         MADE MOBB, Kansas City, MO

·         1Canoe2, Fulton, MO

·         Reborn Co., Rogersville, MO

·         Giving Gardens, Columbia, MO

 

The Treasurer’s Office supports Missouri small business through Missouri FIRST, the state’s linked deposit program. Linked deposits partner the Treasurer’s Office with Missouri lenders to provide low-interest loans to qualifying small businesses. The program allows the borrower to save, on average, 30% on interest. More information on Missouri FIRST can be found at https://treasurer.mo.gov/content/low-interest-loans/.

 

Small Business Week recognizes the important contributions of entrepreneurs and small business owners across the country. Nationally, more than half of Americans either work for or own a small business—and small business owners create two out of three American jobs.

 

Small Business Week runs from May 2-8, 2021.
