During the conference, NFL legend and entrepreneur Fran Tarkenton, who has partnered with Office Depot to support small businesses, will share how he launched 20 companies in the last 25 years the largest reaching revenues of more than $140 million. Office Depot and Tarkenton partnered earlier this year to launch, a free, one-stop-resource for business advice and tools from the nation’s leading SMB experts.

Tarkenton will be one of the keynote speakers during the Washington, D.C. portion of National Small Business Week on Friday, June 21. He will also be available for media interviews and one-on-one sessions with entrepreneurs at Office Depot’s interactive booth in D.C.

“National Small Business Week celebrates the power of the entrepreneurial spirit, something that both Office Depot and I have supported for many years and believe in passionately,” said Tarkenton. “ is like having your own seasoned mentor available 24-7, at no charge. Arming small business owners with tools and expert advice empowers them to grow profitably and create jobs that fuel our economy.”

Office Depot has a full range of products, services and programs to assist small business owners in starting, running and growing profitable businesses. For more information, click here.
