Call for local businesses to get involved in Small Business Saturday

Applications are now open for the 2019 cohort of 100 businesses that will go on to form the core of the Small Business Saturday campaign across the UK this year. The event culminates in Small Business Saturday in the run up to Christmas.

Free to apply and offering opportunities for PR, events, networking, support and inspiration, this is the hot ticket for small businesses this June! The campaign will celebrate one business a day in the 100 days running up to Small Business Saturday, starting on Friday 30th August.

I would love to try and ensure one or two Tatton based businesses are selected as part of the 100! Details of how to apply can be found here:

What Smallbiz100 is all about!

What happens on 'your' day?

The successful 100 businesses are profiled on Small Business Saturday's social media channels and their selection is shared with local and national press.

Many 100 have chosen to mark their day by holding an event, offering a promotion or making an announcement.

Are there any events for the 100?

Previous 100 businesses have been invited to exclusive ‘Blue Tie’ events and have also joined the Small Business Saturday team in London at receptions in Downing Street, House of Lords and the Treasury Drum with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

How do you apply?

Via the Small Business Saturday UK website,

Can you apply again?

There is no need. Once a business is selected, they are an Alumni for life, part of a diverse community of small businesses that help each other, and have access to exclusive events and more.
