Small Business Week
We at 7x7 pride ourselves in supporting local business—in fact, we are currently in the final stage of searching for 2012's Favorite Small Business! So, in honor of San Francisco Small Business Week, we encourage you to hit the streets this Saturday, May 19th, and explore one of our favorite neighborhood strips: Valencia Street in the Mission!
It's always astonishing to see just how much the Bay Area cherishes its small businesses, and this time of year the admiration rings especially loud and clear, thanks to SF Small Business Week. We asked you to nominate your favorites, and we narrowed it down to the Top 14 most-nominated finalists that help make the Bay one of the coolest places to live.
Now, it's time to vote.
We had so much fun learning about all the Bay Area's amazing, hard-working businesses last year for SF Small Business Week, that we decided to do it again this year. It all officially starts on May 14th through the 20th, but we thought we'd get to celebrating the Bay's vibrant economic scene and entrepreneurial spirit a little early. Starting today until Friday, May 11, we want you to nominate your favorite local small business that you think helps make the Bay Area one of the best places ever to live and work.
SF Small Business Week, which takes place from May 16 through 21, is an annual celebration of all the small businesses that contribute to our region’s economic prosperity and make the Bay Area one of the most desirable places to live on the planet. Leading up to Small Business Week, Wells Fargo has generously donated a flight of free ATM advertising to the business 7x7 readers crown as "The Bay Area's Favorite Small Business." Additionally, the winning business will receive an advisory session with a panel of representatives from Wells Fargo Business Banking, a forum that will provide the business owner with valuable advice on raising capital and financing their business and equipment, marketing, HR and recommendations on general business practices.
