Inspire Series

Small Business Saturday exists to support, inspire and promote small businesses. As part of our ‘Inspire’ stream of work we are kicking off our fantastic new ‘Inspire Series’. The series will see a number of brilliant entrepreneurs and figures in the world of small business give talks and workshops to existing and aspiring small businesses & entrepreneurs for free.

The series will be structured to have a workshop and participatory feel - the speaker will begin by talking about the subject followed by a Q&A session as well as live streaming and live Twitter Q&As. This will allow for digital participation for those who cannot make the talks in person.

See to the right for the first of our Inspire series talks and get in touch at comms@smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com if you are interested in attending any of these talks.

Bus Tour

BROUGHT TO YOU BY
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

Last year we took the Small Business Saturday bus around the UK and this year we are back with a bigger and better tour!

With more locations and a bigger bus we hope to spread the word far and wide, so if you are interested in getting involved and we are coming to a location near you, check out the map and get in touch, or just come along on the day to say hello and show your support.

 
SMALL
BIZ
100

As Small Business Saturday UK is all about championing small businesses, we are once again using our social media channels to feature 100 small businesses, one a day for the 100 days leading up to December 6th.

Last year's 100 not only received exposure on our social media channels and in the local press, but also joined the Small Business Saturday team in London at a reception in Downing Street with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne.

We have heard from many great Small Businesses who want to be part of this year's Small Biz 100 and applications are now closed.

Below you will find our calendar of our Small Biz 100. From 29th August 2014 we will add a new small business everyday to feature.

Check back here each day to see the next of our Small Biz 100...
