Every September, the U.S. Small Business Administration hosts and promotes National Small Business Week to encourage support of small business owners and create awareness about how they create jobs, bolster and enhance our economy, and drive innovation. Year round, SBA helps women-owned businesses compete for federal contracts through their Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program. In addition to providing the WBENC Certification process, WBENC is also an approved third-party certifier for the WOSB program.

This year’s Small Business Week is September 13-17. Capital One and Spring, an online marketplace for small businesses, takes their support of small business owners one step further – expanding their efforts into the entire month of September.

This year, Spring is again partnering with WBENC to provide significant discounts and deals on business essentials that WBEs purchase every day to keep their businesses running and thriving. Spring’s procurement experts negotiate special deals for each week of September, with deeper discounts and more differentiated savings to help businesses save even more.

Spring helps to level the playing field so that small businesses can better compete by minimizing operating expenses and maximizing reinvestment on growth.

Spring is open to all small businesses across the U.S., even if you aren’t a Capital One customer. There are no strings attached, no hidden fees, and no kickbacks for Capital One, just the deals that business owners deserve.

Visit Spring often throughout September ad take advantage of great deals, including up to 45% off shipping with FedEx, $150 off device payment plans from Verizon, up to 40% off office supplies from Office Depot, up to 50% off hotel rates from Priceline, and more.
