Intuit QuickBooks and Mailchimp Introduce Small Business Hero Day to Celebrate Everyday Local Heroes

Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU), the global technology platform that makes QuickBooks, TurboTax, Mint, Credit Karma, and Mailchimp, is declaring May as Small Business Success Month for the second consecutive year. The month will include a series of activities including a Town Hall with the U.S. Small Business Administration and the introduction of a new recognition day to cap off the month: Small Business Hero Day on May 31.

The importance of small businesses in our communities is undeniable. A recent survey of 8,000 U.S. consumers found 66% view small businesses as the lifeblood of their community and 73% say small businesses make their community a better place to live, with top benefits like creating a stronger sense of community and jobs. There is also near 100% agreement that small businesses go above and beyond for their customers and community and 64% say small business owners are community heroes. But, 7 in 10 say that small business owners should get more recognition.

"Every day, millions of small businesses across the U.S. serve their customers, strengthen their communities and play a critical role in powering our economy," said Alex Chriss, EVP and GM, Small Business & Self Employed Group at Intuit. "Through Small Business Success Month, we are excited to celebrate the incredible impact small businesses have in our communities and continue to support them on their journey with the resources they need and the recognition they deserve."

Whether it's the wedding caterer who scrambled to accommodate the larger-than-expected guest list, the plumber who arrived at 2 a.m. when a pipe burst, the 24-hour locksmith that got a locked-out family back in their home, or the restaurant owner who donated food to the local food bank, the ways that small businesses save the day?big and small?are as unique as they are.
