Starting on July 19 and running until July 20, it will gather more than 2,500 small business owners in Washington, D.C.

The Summit, which will offer its attendees more than 400 meetings with legislators to advocate for policies and laws that affect them, including access to capital, the workforce and competitiveness, child care and government contracting, also seeks to promote a petition from this segment of entrepreneurs to Congress, requesting that it reauthorizes the Small Business Administration (SBA) for the first time in more than 20 years to meet their needs.
